Dancer. Choreographer. Activist. Educator. Muslim. American.
Amirah Sackett embodies both tradition and innovation. Her dance and performance art garnered international recognition, most notably with her performance group We’re Muslim, Don’t Panic.
Our International Education Committee via Conscious Campus arranged her visit to Northeast State in October to share her experiences with students. Amirah graciously accepted an invitation to The Sound Bearier to talk about life, inspiration, the fusion of hip-hop dance and Islamic tradition, and the road ahead.
