Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan is the name of the 22-year-old Muslim woman whose spoken word performance at the Roundhouse Poetry Slam has been garnering worldwide attention ever since it surfaced online. A History degree graduate from Cambridge University and the brains behind The Brown Hijabi, her poem is a moving and intelligent critique of the dehumanisation of Muslims in our society and definitely, a must watch!
“If you need me to prove my humanity, I’m not the one who’s not human.”
