Everyday Muslim Symposium


"Everyday
Muslim’s third annual symposium will aim to explore constructions of
Black Muslim identity and heritage in the UK and how the stories of
Black British Muslims intersect within the wider British Muslim society
and beyond. It will bring together those working in academic, heritage,
arts and media organisations to interrogate the changing ways in which
everyday Black Muslim life has been represented and archived. It seeks
to ask how the process of constructing a Black Muslim heritage has
changed over the years and looks forward to possible forms that this
might take in the future."
