Muslim. Intersectional Feminist. Poet.

   

SAGIRAH SHAHID is an African American Muslim poet, arts educator, and performing artist from Minneapolis, MN. She is a recipient of awards, fellowship, and residencies  from the Loft Literary Center, Minnesota Center for Book Arts, Twin Cities Media Alliance,  Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art and Muslim Advocates,  Strive Publishing,  Wisdom Ways, Nicollet Lanterns, and 826 MSP. In 2021 Sagirah was co-curator of the City of Saint Paul’s Sidewalk Poetry project and is a writer-in-residence with the Write Like Us program. When she isn’t creating art, Sagirah celebrates her life as an auntie, usually working part-time at some job so that she can explore poetry with the student-writers of Unrestricted Interest, a writing program and consultancy dedicated to supporting  neurodivergent learners  through creative writing. Sagirah’s children’s activity book Get Involved in a Book Club!  is available at Capstone press.
