Muslim Voices of Philadelphia

Location:  Philadelphia, PA
Project Description: 

Muslim Voices of Philadelphia is a collaborative oral history media project that calls on all interested members of Islamic educational and cultural organizations to work with filmmakers and scholars to document the histories, practices, and contributions of the many Muslims who have come to call the Philadelphia region home. Muslim Voices of Philadelphia connects archival research, ethnography, oral history, and digital media to encourage community organizations to record their rich and diverse histories. Participants will create documents and media that can be used by Philadelphia’s Muslim communities, advocacy groups, museums, schools, universities, and libraries, and will be available for public broadcast and community screenings.
