In this important phase of existence, with endless war perpetrated and instigated by the lead nation of the coalition of the willing, where people are scared to speak out against illegal wars, we give you an un-missable event to honour a man who did just that and was labelled the ‘extremist’ of his time, but his legacy lives on because to millions, he was a hero that spoke out for the oppressed people world-wide.
The Salaam project welcomes you to an unforgettable evening of edutainment where we learn about the man, his life and his mission and how he has affected people world-wide delivered to you in the form of spoken word poetry, hip hop as well as inspiring lectures.
