Unless you are a Muslim or have Muslim friends, most of what you know about Muslims comes from the media, which can offer valuable insights, but too frequently provide caricatures if not misinformation about Muslim lifestyle and faith. The July 21 Westside Progressives meeting will provide an opportunity to hear firsthand what it means to be a Muslim in Minnesota.

Our speaker will be Nadia Mohamed, Ph.D. Nadia is a professor in the Global Studies department at Minneapolis Community & Technical College, where she teaches World Religions, World Cultures, Global Studies, Arab History and Culture, and Strategies for College Success. She holds a Master’s Degree in Islamic Law and a Ph.D. in Education. She founded two Islamic Schools in the U.S.
