The MPAC Hollywood Bureau partnered with the Writers Guild Foundation and MuslimARC for a discussion that challenges the damaging tropes seen on screen by highlighting more authentic depictions of Black Muslim identities created by talented Black Muslim screenwriters.

Is there anything in the pipeline with a story about black Muslim love? 8:08 -- How do you raise funds for your work? 10:48 -- What are the challenges that you face dealing with the white executives that don’t understand the nuances of black Muslim culture as you create content? 13:57 -- Have you felt like the community criticizes your work? How are you dealing with the support or criticism of the community when trying to create authentic stories? 19:52 -- What are your takeaways from this conversation? Are you working on any projects that we can support? ---------- Subscribe to MPAC's YouTube channel: http://bit.ly/MPACYouTube Like MPAC on Facebook: http://fb.com/mpacnational Follow MPAC on Twitter: http://twitter.com/mpac_national Follow MPAC on Instagram: http://instagram.com/mpac_national Visit MPAC's website: http://mpac.org About the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) We improve public understanding and policies that impact American Muslims by engaging our government, media, and communities.
