“To be Black and Muslim in today’s society is to be part of two marginalised and misunderstood communities. To simultaneously navigate the various stereotypes that are held about Black people and of Muslims.” -Feisal Haji, for NUS Connect

  • Any subjects related to being a Black Muslim in Britain
