Meet the female Muslim hip hop group who are setting the record straight about women of their faith using fast-paced moves to funky grooves. We’re Muslim Don’t Panic a three-woman performance group that executes flawless hip-hop numbers in niqab and high-tops.
Created by Choreographer, artist and teacher Amirah Sackett in collaboration with hip-hop dancers Khadijah Sifterllah-Griffin and Iman Sifterllah-Griffin , this group is using hijabs and sneakers to stamp over Islamophobia and combat the stereotype that Muslim women are voiceless.
“I am speaking in an American art form, which is hip-hop dance. Seeing an image of a fully clad Muslim woman and then making it powerful and beautiful, that was my goal,” says Sackett to AJ+.
