The Muslim Journeys theme for our discussion series is American Stories. American Muslims’ stories draw attention to ways in which people of varying religious, cultural, ethnic, and racial backgrounds interact to shape both the communities’ identities and our collective past.
The discussions are based on books from the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf collection available in all GPC campus libraries. The chapter reading for the first discussion will be sent to registrants by e-mail before the first discussion.
Muslim Journeys is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Libraries Association.
