In the aftermath of September 11th, 2001, Project South worked with our regional movement partner Highlander Research & Education Center to hold an emergency meeting for movement leaders from across the U.S. South. As a Southern-based movement organization rooted in the Black Radical Traditions of the U.S. South, we anticipated that the events of September 11th and the State response would create a paradigm shift for the social, economic, and political conditions in our country. As a result of that meeting, Project South initiated a set of popular education workshops in 2002 and published a workbook called Roots of Terror to provide historical context for the “War on Terror” and USA PATRIOT Act after 9/11. Since that time, Project South has developed analysis and programs to contend with the rise in Islamophobia as a critical frontline in the work for racial justice and movement building.
