Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, American Stories

None
7 p.m., Tuesday January 14
Muslims' stories draw attention to ways in which people of varying religious, cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds interact to shape both their communities’ identities and our nation’s collective past,” Winn said. “The actual history of Muslims in America tells the story of people who are both Muslim and American, even if tension exists and challenges us as we strive to realize our founding ideals of equality and pluralism.

The first book, “Prince Among Slaves,” is a biography about Abd al-Rahman Ibrahima, one of tens of thousands of West African Muslims who lived in slavery in antebellum America. Ibrahima became known as “the prince” to residents of Natchez, Miss. Although a slave, he was an educated, aristocratic man made overseer of the large plantation of his master, who refused to sell him.

At each session in the five-part series, a humanities scholar makes a presentation on the book in the context of the theme. Small group discussions follow with experienced discussion leaders. At the end, all participants come together for a brief wrap-up.

Those who are interested in participating are encouraged to preregister and borrow the reading selections and theme brochure by calling Winn at (405) 208-5472, e-mailing him at hwinn@okcu.edu or dropping by the Dulaney-Browne Library room 211 or 207.
