Twenty-three year-old Faatimah Knight is the woman behind Respond With Love, a fundraiser for black churches destroyed by arson. The fundraiser has already surpassed its $50,000 goal.
“We must always keep in mind that the Muslim community and the black community are not different communities. We are profoundly integrated in many ways, in our overlapping identities and in our relationship to this great and complicated country. We are connected to Black churches through our extended families, our friends and teachers, and our intertwined histories and convergent present,” reads the statement on the fundraiser’s page.
