Authors Speak – Khadijah Abdulhaqq

Layla Abdullah-Poulos and Khadijah Abdulhaqq talk about the author’s latest book Nanni’s Hijab and bullying Muslim children and adults face inside and outside of Muslim spaces.

Children across the country continue to be adversely affected by bullying. Muslim children frequently encounter layers of bullying resulting from aversions to their faith, skin color, background, etc., which makes it necessary for open conversations about it.

AbdulHaqq shares her motivations for writing Nanni’s Hijab and how parents may help keep their children and themselves safer.
