Suhaiymah Manzoor-Khan is a writer, public speaker and spoken-word poet from the UK who believes stringently in speaking truth to power. For three years she has written about liberation, race, gender, Islamophobia, intersectionality and decoloniality at her website, www.thebrownhijabi.com which has been republished in national newspapers such as The Independent. These are topics she has also spoken about at British Universities, museums, libraries, in Parliament, Amnesty UK headquarters and in her TEDxCoventGardenWomen talk.

Suhaiymah is the runner-up of the UK's national Roundhouse Poetry Slam 2017 and has performed on BBC radio stations, the Islam Channel, the Downs music festival and across California where she came third in the ILL LIST 2017 slam. As a History and Postcolonial Studies graduate from Cambridge and SOAS universities respectively, her work often grapples with her intellectual interests and research - particularly regarding experiences of the Pakistani diaspora in Britain and of British Muslims' relationship with the security state. All Suhaiymah's activism is driven by her faith.
