Here are Some of the Incredible Looks from the 2019 Eid al-Adha Edition of #BlackOutEid
Young Black Muslims showed out once again for #BlackOutEid.
Yesterday marked the end of Eid al-Adha, the Muslim holy day held yearly during Hajj, the five-day pilgrimage to Mecca.
Every year since 2015, young black Muslims, using the hashtag #BlackOutEid, created by Aamina Mohamed, use the hastag to show off their best looks. Mohamed created the movement in order to combat the erasure of black Muslims and highlight the diversity within the Muslim community.
"I'm actually pretty amazed at the continued self-sustaining support," Mohamed told OkayAfrica back in 2017. "I think of it a lot like, 'Wow, this is going to be amazing to look back on in 15 to 20 years. It's like a in real-time archival experience."
This year is no different, several took to twitter, using the now viral hashtag to show off their best looks for the celebration—and, once again, they did not disappoint in the slightest.
Check out some of the looks from this year's #BlackOutEid celebrations below.
