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.
