Sally Howell and the BIID Exhibit was featured by David Crumm on the Read The Spirit blog:
HERE’S AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE of the kind of program you’ll find unfolding in many places across the U.S. these days. It’s called “Building Islam in Detroit,” a traveling exhibition of colorful photographs and short, educational texts explaining how one of America’s most famous Muslim communities was born and evolved over time.
I invited Sally Howell of the University of Michigan Program in American Culture, one of the coordinators of this traveling exhibition, to share a few words with you today. Here’s what she wants to tell you:
I want to invite readers to visit an exhibit entitled, “Building Islam in Detroit: Foundations Forms Futures.” For anyone who is curious about Detroit’s thriving Muslim communities, this exhibit provides a great introduction to the history of local Muslims and to the 50-plus mosques they have built in this area.
