Sukina Owen-Douglas and Tanya Muneera Williams, collectively known as Hip-Hop duo Poetic Pilgrimage, are taking on the challenge of fighting for women’s rights. The Jamaican-British Muslim converts are currently on an online fundraising drive for their upcoming documentary, Hip Hop Hijabis, that highlights the past three years of Poetic Pilgrimage’s growth and the barriers they help to break.
Hip Hop Hijabis follows the group as they mark their triumphs and difficult times traipsing around the globe. Filmed partly in the U.K., United States and Morocco, Poetic Pilgrimage isn’t looking to upset the balance of Islam but they hope the film will spark necessary dialogue about women’s rights, Islamophobia and other social issues.
