Abstract

There are estimated to be 6 – 7 million Muslims living in America and the number is growing rapidly through immigration, conversion, and the birth of a new generation. During this Wednesday Forum Jaye will provide an overview of American Muslim demographics and history with a look at the rapidly expanding institutions and cultural contributions. Special attention will be given to the experiences of Muslim women, the impact of September 11th and the well-funded strategic anti-Muslim/Islam campaigns.
