Upcoming Seminar

Deeper Roots: History of Islam
in the Americas

Do you feel like a stranger here

- like you don’t belong?

Our youth feel disconnected, 
disillusioned with “conflicting” identities…
...told time and time againthat you don’t belong.


Our communities self-isolate,
stick to what they know…
...because we’re young,
only a generation or 2 old.


Islam is the “other”,
new to the West…
...African slaves were the exception.
