Bilqis Abdul-Qaadir is the all-time leading scorer in Massachusetts history for high school basketball (male or female). In 2010, she became the first NCAA Division I player to wear a hijab on the court. But for three years she was blocked from pursuing her professional basketball career due to a FIBA rule that bans headscarves in international competitions. Unwilling to stray in her beliefs, Bilqis chose faith over basketball and became an advocate working alongside other Muslim players. In numerous powerful ways, Bilqis has raised her voice for the next generation. Come learn about her journey.
