Have Muslim scholars ever supported anti-blackness? What challenges do black Muslims face today? In this podcast, African American scholar, Shaykh Dr Abdullah bin Hamid Ali discusses his compelling book, “The Negro in Arab-Muslim Consciousness” with podcast host Remona Aly.

Shaykh Abdullah explains the term ‘negro’, shares his personal connection to the Nation of Islam, and addresses black antipathy in scholarly discourse. The podcast also features an eye-opening conversation with two young British black Muslims, poet Mohamed Mohamed, and student and author, Hafsah Dabiri, who discuss identity, belonging and the importance of celebrating black Muslim heritage.
