Price: Free

Event description

Doors 1.30pm Start 2pm & Doors 4:30pm  Start 5pm

Part of the South Asian Heritage Festival

Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan is a writer, poet and educator disrupting understandings of history, race, knowledge and violence. In 2019 she published Postcolonial Banter, an anthology of poetry critiquing racism, Islamophobia, and notions of national identity. The collection includes poems which have had millions of online views and been featured across TV and radio. This year she published Tangled In Terror: Uprooting Islamophobia, a non fiction work which calls on us to move on from debating whether and what Islamophobia is, to what it does and how we uproot it. The book has been called ‘courageous’ by rapper, Lowkey, ‘one of the most exciting voices of her generation’ by award-winning channel 4 journalist Fatima Manji, and ‘fierce’ by feminist activist Lola Olufemi.
