This poem called Spoken Word was written by Aiysha Alli from our Youth Leadership Team. A poem about growing up as a Black Muslim Girl.
Racism is a topic people like to avoid because it is big. It can’t be whittled down to one action or incident and therefore, it creates awkward silences.The elephant in the room.It raises questions that need to be answered. It brings a topic that is usually swept under the rug above board and forces people to engage with the reality of it.
