A presentation by the Islamic Resource Group in conjunction with Tracks in the Snow 

The presentation describes the earliest Muslims in this country, namely enslaved West Africans, and features stories and experiences of individual enslaved Muslims, including “Prince”, who is featured in a PBS documentary called “Prince Among Slaves,” which was aired in 2007. It also chronicles the development of conversion movements in the African American community and the impact of West African Muslim culture on the U.S. The presentation also traces the presence of Arab and other immigrant Muslims from pre-Columbus times. 

Thursday, October 29, 6:30 – 8:30 p.m. 

In-person and on Zoom 

Fee: Free!
