Life Without Basketball: Film Screening & Discussion

Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir broke records and barriers on her way to become the first Division I athlete to play basketball while wearing hijab. When a controversial ruling ends her chances at playing professionally, she re-examines her faith and identity as a Muslim American. 

Come enjoy this thought-provoking film, centered around questions of faith, gender, and justice. Stay as Harvard Muslim Chaplain, Khalil Abdur-Rashid, leads a discussion with members of the Harvard Muslim Community and the film’s directors, Jon Mercer and Tim O’Donnell.
