October is Islamic History Month: 2020 Theme "Resilience and Achievements of Black Muslims"Written by Islamic History Month Canada
Islamic History Month Canada (IHMC) invites you to learn, share and celebrate Islamic History Month in Canada throughout the month of October — this year with a special focus on the resilience and achievements of Black Muslims.
The poster features Ayuba Suleiman Diallo (1701–1773) who is best known for his memoirs as a Muslim who had to endure the Atlantic slave trade and enslavement in colonial America.
His personal history was published in 1734 by Thomas Bluett as Some Memories of the Life of Job. To this day, they serve as one of the few primary sources on the Atlantic slave trade and life in slavery in eighteenth-century America.
