BAM celebrates the talents, expertise, and stories found within the American Muslim community, and takes pride in its diverse and engaging roster of speakers, performers, and artists. We strive to provide speakers and performers of great caliber, and also promote the up-and-coming.
Lectures. Exhibits. Workshops. Spoken Word. Poetry. Arabic Calligraphy. Comedy. Theater. Book A Muslim is constantly growing its roster to bring you the most diverse programs.
Explore our roster, watch the videos or read the biographies, and then fill out an inquiry form for more information on a particular speaker/performer. Don’t know who would be best for your event? No worries! Fill out the form with as much detail and we will get back to you with our suggestions- or give us a call! Find out more about how it works.
Muslims are often talked about, but not always heard from, and we strive to change that. By giving Muslims, and their allies the opportunity to share their narratives, skills, and expertise, we are breaking down barriers, combating negative stereotypes, and giving voice to the diverse and authentic American Muslim experiences.

How It Works
Interested in putting on an event and don’t have all the details yet? Fill out our booking request form to get things rolling or send us a quick e-mail with what you know.
Tell us who on the roster you’re interested in, what theme you had in mind for the program, and who your audience is. It is important for us to know what you want the take-away to be from this event. Ask about other events we’ve done in the past to get some new ideas!
Speaker + Topic Selection
We then confirm a speaker or artist based on availability and tailor their topic to the overall theme of your program. Our speakers are experts in more than one area, and our artists are multi-talented – so there can be lots to choose from! In this step, we also determine how involved the audience will be: is this a lecture with Q&A at the end, or are you looking for a discussion format with insights provided by the speaker?
Finalizing the details
Next, let’s discuss logistics. We are flexible in terms of dates, times, formats, and your budget – so the question is, what’s most feasible and convenient to you? You’ll fill out a short form that outlines the details to make the hosting and engagement part of the program as smooth as possible.
Contract + Payment
Finally, we’re ready for the contract. Send us yours or we’ll send you ours – or both! You control the direction we take and determine what payment options are best for you.
We make sure that you aren’t disconnected from the person you’re hosting. A few days before your event, the speaker or artist will contact you personally to get to know you a little better. We’re here to build relationships and memorable programs, so booking someone for your event is seamless.
A voluntary questionnaire will be sent to you after your program is over. We would love to get your feedback so that we can continue to improve our process.
