What is it like to be black and Muslim? In the US many online have been reflecting on their experiences using #BeingBlackAndMuslim. Followers of the faith say even though racism is condemned in Islam, it exists within the community. They say “Arab privilege” is part of the problem. On the next Stream we’ll discuss some of the challenges faced by black Muslims. Join us at 19:30 GMT.
