Promoting Black dignity. Supporting Black Muslims.
Who we are
Black Muslim Forum is committed to fostering Black unity, Black empowerment and combating anti-blackness and structural disadvantage for Black Africans and diasporic Africans within global Muslim society. From past programme delivery such as our Black Muslim supplementary school in London to ground breaking research + resources for public use, our aim is to promote Black dignity and support Black Muslims.
Please Note: Black Muslim Forum has now closed down. Our website will remain as a legacy and resource for the public, however all operations have now ceased.
