A month-long programme of panel discussions, seminars, workshops and showcases that celebrate and amplify the global Black Muslim community.
The events will take place during Black History Month (UK).
A CELEBRATION OF THE BLACK MUSLIM EXPERIENCE
Increasingly, Black Muslims are coming together to discuss shared challenges and ideas for the future. These discussions, so vital for the healing of our collective past, are inspiring change and growth throughout the African diaspora.
The Black Muslim Festival will explore the different aspects of our experience, from self development, identity and mental health to relationships and parenting, from wealth creation and business to community activism, hijrah and preparation for the next generation.
The festival begins in
CELEBRATING THE BLACK MUSLIM IDENTITY
From Islamic scholars to athletes, from intellectuals to community activists, from entrepreneurs to politicians, from artists to healers, the global Black Muslim community is thriving like never before, masha Allah.
The goal of the festival is to come together to celebrate the identity, achievements and shared heritage of Black Muslims worldwide and to amplify the voices of Black Muslim thinkers, academics, creatives and activists on topics that are relevant to the community.
