#BlackMuslimRamadan is a hashtag started this Wednesday by Donna Auston, a doctoral candidate in anthropology.
Auston told BuzzFeed she started the hashtag in order to increase visibility and exert a greater level of control over the American Muslim narrative, where black Muslims are rarely included.
Auston also said she launched the hashtag because "celebrating the beauty and richness of black life and cultural expression is absolutely essential," in light of #blacklivesmatter and attacks on black religious centers in Charleston and elsewhere.
Many on Twitter took the opportunity to discuss microaggressions and misconceptions within the Muslim community.
Others revealed the struggle of fasting while poor or homeless.
There were many tributes to the lasting influence black Muslim elders have had on the civil rights struggle in America.
Some pointed out that black Muslims have been in America as early as slavery.
Of course, it was also an opportunity to show off Ramadan swag.
There were lots of excellent tweets about the amazing food black Muslims are well-known for.
