America's Islamic Heritage Museum

America's Islamic Heritage Museum History of Islam and Muslims in America America's Islamic Heritage Museum opened to the public on April 30, 2011. Located in Washington, DC it is a continuation of the traveling exhibition, Collections and Stories of American Muslims (CSAM) which was established as a non-profit in 1996.
(55)

Before opening the museum, CSAM traveled domestically and internationally to better inform the public of the early and continued presence of Muslims in America. Throughout American history Islam and Muslims has always been present as a culture with religious influence. Muslims of various backgrounds have come to these shores in successive waves since the earliest navigators up until present day. The goal of America's Islamic Heritage Museum is to collect and preserve those stories for posterity. The exhibits bring to life America's rich Islamic heritage with some eye opening photographs, documents, and objects, which reflect America's rich culture diversity connecting Muslims to early America. Our exhibits are empowering and insightful. They are great educational tools for the public.

Pioneer Poetry

Poetry has been a medium through which history and culture has been preserved since the beginning of time. Islamically, scholars have explained complex concepts through this medium, and as Black descendants of Africa, griots were major and important pieces of our societal puzzle. Join us for a live recording of some of our pioneers who not only have shaped and fought for our right to live peacefully in this land as Muslims, but who also posses major poetical talent. You may be surprised by their roots! See you soon!
