#FireHabib is a response spearheaded by Art and the African Mind to the events of the 11th March 2021 where new SOAS Director Adam Habib verbalised the n-word in an all-students meeting when asked a question on institutional racism and non-Black lecturers use of the n word in class. The campaign has seen success in mobilising the SOAS community, resulting in SU and UNISON motions to remove the director and seriously address anti-Blackness at SOAS pass by an overwhelming majority. Art and the African Mind also commissioned an independent People’s Tribunal after rejecting the School’s formal investigation and ‘restorative justice’ process.
