MENDTalks: On Being Black and Muslim

Date: 21 Jun 2020

Time: 2:00pm - 4:00pm

Venue: Online via Facebook Live (@mendcommunity),

About this event:

“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.

Muslims are far more diverse than popular images allow, and this, combined with anti-blackness within the Muslim community, has seen the visibility of Black Muslims and the presence of their voices eroded in both Muslim spaces and in the way that Islam is portrayed to the wider British community.

With 10% of British Muslims identifying as Black, an opportunity to hear the grassroots voices of those from within the community is long overdue.

MEND hopes that this is a positive step in their own journey towards addressing the continued marginalisation and suppression of Black voices.

Join us on FB Live to hear Black Muslims contributors discuss the topics that they feel are most pertinent to them.
