Philadelphia Muslim History Series

In a series of webinars, CAIR-Philadelphia will celebrate the Greater Delaware Valley’s rich Muslim history. Through February, we will celebrate Black History Month by inviting giants of our community to talk about their institutions and personal stories. The series will help contextualize Philadelphia’s Muslim history as well as highlight critical conversations on racism and racial justice.
