30 reasons why #BlackOutEid is swaggy and beautiful

Flexin' on a whole other level.

Yesterday, #BlackOutEid was trending everywhere from Abuja to Seattle, Toronto, London and Minneapolis. Black Muslims flooded the Twittersphere with photos in their most swagged out, beautiful outfits – showing the world that Black is indeed beautiful.

The creator of the tag, @krennylavitz, wanted to create a space specifically for Black Muslims online. Using twitter as her platform, she hoped to leverage the playing field a bit, as Black Muslim beauty isn’t typically showcased due to anti-blackness. Why wait around to be represented, right? 

The hashtag created a space for Black Muslims to showcase their joy, family, and Eid traditions. Take a look at some of our favorite #BlackOutEid tweets.
