My painting is a visual representation of an America in all its multicultural, diverse beauty! I envision a future where Americans of different races and cultures interact and collaborate with one another. Presently, our society is segregated among racial and socioeconomic lines.
Muslim Americans are not immune to this reality as these divisions are present within our worship spaces. To combat racism in America, Muslim Americans must begin by breaking down the prejudices in our hearts. My piece depicts a society where everyone’s individual and cultural self-expression is honored and respected.
