Join us for two short talks and a closing reception for the Building Islam in Detroit exhibit.
Dr. Zain Abdullah, cultural anthropologist and author, in his talk titled "Islam and the Challenge of Black Muslim Globalities in the 21st Century," will take us inside the lives of African American and African Muslims, exploring how they redefine their Black and African identities, cope with the stigma of race, and counteract an anti-Muslim backlash in a terror-stricken world.
Dr. Sally Howell, Assistant Professor of History at UM-Dearborn and curator of the exhibit, in her talk titled "They are Orientals and they Love the East," will discuss conflating race, nation, and religion for Detroit Muslims in the 1920s.
