Ibtihaj Muhammad - The Kindest Red: A Story of Hijab and Friendship - at Conn Ave in the Children & Teens Department

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - 6:00pm

It’s picture day and Faizah wears her special red dress with matching hair ribbons, passed down from her mother and sister. When Faizah’s teacher asks the students to envision the kind of world they want, the children are inspired to spend the day helping one another in ways large and small.  

When it’s time for sibling pictures, Faizah realizes that she and her older sister, Asiya, don’t match like her classmates do with their siblings. With help from her classmates inspired by Asiya’s hijab, Faizah finds that acts of kindness can come back to you in unexpected ways.   

Ibtihaj Muhammad is an entrepreneur, activist, speaker, and Olympic medalist in fencing. A 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, 5-time Senior World medalist and 2016 World Champion Muhammed became the first American woman to compete in the Olympics wearing a hijab. She is also the author of Proud: My Fight for an Unlikely American Dream and the picture book The Proudest Blue: A Story of Hijab and Family.
