The Black and Muslim in Britain Project

Sunday 1 October 2017 from 1pm - 5pm

The Black and Muslim in Britain Project was initiated in October 2016 with the intention of addressing the lack of faith representation during Black History Month in the UK. We had an overwhelming response on social media from many Black Muslims from around the UK from different ages and backgrounds who could relate and empathise with the importance of ensuring that we provide a narrative of the stories, struggles, rich history, challenges, culture, politics, family traditions and the beauty of being Black and Muslim. It is essential that this narrative is reflective of the diversity of our community.

This overwhelming response allowed us to realise the need of such a project in today’s society and the importance of making sure that such a project is done to the highest of quality, so it was decided to relaunch and with the intention of releasing the video during Black History Month in October 2017.
The series, which consists of six videos is a collection of stories and dialogue from influential Black Muslim in the UK in the arts, sports, academia, etc. The collection is light hearted, informative but also manages to address sensitive issues that apply both to the Black Muslim Community as well as the Wider community.

The official screening of the videos will take place on Sunday 1st October with special performances, presentations and discussion from noteworthy Black figures in the community.

Tickets available for the screening at Birkbeck University on Sunday 1 October 2017 from 1pm – 5pm and would love to have you attend., especially as it is the 30th anniversary of Black History Month celebrations in the UK.
