In this episode of On The Square, our host Dr. Su’ad is joined by the Sapelo Squad! As we round out the podcast series and 2021 we wanted to bring the Squad to you up close and personal so you get to know the people behind the work you’ve come to love. From the neverending pandemic, exonerations in the murder of Malcolm X and the coup in Sudan to the Lox VERZUZ Dipset and Black Muslim women creatives making moves Squad members, Dr. Nisa Muhammad (Internship Coordinator), Jermaine Foster (Web Developer), Aïdah Aliyah Rasheed (Special Projects), Latasha Rouseau (Administrative Coordinator) and Aisha Caruth (Managing Editor), share their thoughts on the year’s wins, losses, and controversies.
To the question, What’s your Black Muslim Theme Song?, the Squad’s list includes: Rock Dis Funky Joint by the Poor Righteous Teachers, Lost Ones by Lauryn Hill, John Legend’s cover of Redemption Song, A.P.I.D.T.A by Jay Electronica, A Long Walk by Jill Scott and Get By by Talib Kweli.
