As part of the Islamic Education and Research Academy’s (iERA) One Community campaign, ‘Against Racism, Against Hatred’ a host of speakers and organisations from various backgrounds will be coming together to discuss the role of black people in Islamic history, share experiences of being black and Muslim, and to explore Islam’s solution to racism in Newcastle Upon Tyne and Birmingham.
We hope that this initiative will help tackle the rising levels of prejudice, discrimination, and promote greater understanding between people from different communities.
Project Manager Abu Tayeb Khairdeen said: “This initiative is long overdue. The relationship between Islam and black history is a rich one that should be celebrated. We hope that, by drawing attention to this overlooked chapter in human history, we can focus on shared values and build bridges between people of various faiths and none.”
