Discover Muslim Paintings and Portraits

We visit one of the most popular galleries in the country, the fascinating National Portrait Gallery founded in 1856. The gallery holds an array of Muslim oriented displays as well as some with hidden connections.

We will be looking at a Black Muslim who became enslaved and fails at times to be mentioned in Black history month despite having British connections and contributions done in England in 1700s.
