After Malcolm Digital Archive

In Spring 2019, the Center imported and re-launched the After Malcolm Project, initially developed at Georgia Tech University. The project is a digital database of publications and private archives of African-American Muslim communities, open to the public and researchers. Setting up a digital humanities and oral history project that will document the breadth and diversity of American Muslim communities with a particular focus on the mid-Atlantic region and southern United States. Whereas much of the current discussion of Muslims in the US focuses on refugees and recent immigrants, the purpose of this project will be to document and showcase the American Muslim experience across several centuries and to explain how major periods and events throughout American history were experience by and shaped Muslim communities of diverse racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds.
