Event description

Description

Given the recent events with the Libyan Slave Trade and the rise in Islamophobia, Black Muslims not only deal with this but also endure macro/microaggression by their fellow Muslim brothers and sisters. As an association that represents BME students, we thought to hold an event named ‘Being Black and Muslim’, in which we discuss the complexities of this identity, the drawbacks, the strengths and experiences.

We invited guest speakers to discuss these topics:

1) Habeeb Akande - historian and author - written a book about Anti-blackness in the Muslim community

2) Muneera Williams - poet - discusses the struggles of being Black and Muslim living in the UK

3) Rakin Niass - teacher, life-coach and poet
