Project: The Freedom Writers Journals

THE MUSLIM QUARANTINE JOURNALS (aka The freedom writers project)


It is an understatement to say that 2020 has been quite a year for the world.

But how about for the Muslim? Last year on March 2020, at the very birth of the lockdown period due to COVID-19, The Stranger’s Poets, began a heavy project. We documented the journals of over 20 Muslims from different parts of the world and did this until the first phase of reopening of the City of New York in June 2020.

The works are in edits and we hope you can hold this space until their release in the next few months.
