Muslim Americans Share Their Perspectives

Hilary Schmitt's senior history elective class Issues in Islam, hosted two speakers this week: Ameena Jandali of the Islamic Networks Group and Moina Shaiq, a Pakistani American woman from Fremont. Both shared their stories as Muslim Americans, the history of their faith, as well as the particular experience of women in Islam. Students visited Mosques in either San Francisco, Mill Valley, or Oakland and blogged about their experiences and their interviews with Muslims in the local Bay Area.
