Celebrating Okolo Rashid

Filed in Stories, voices :: March 8, 2012

Today, International Women’s Day, is the perfect day to celebrate Okolo Rashid, one of the National Women’s History Project’s honorees.

Born in Mississippi in 1949, Rashid works for local and global social justice, education, and peace.

She is the Director of Jackson, Mississippi’s International Museum of Muslim Cultures.

Her life and work are a testament to our interconnectedness, regardless of race, country, or religion.
