The After Malcolm Digital Archive

This temporary exhibit on the 3rd floor explores the experiences of African American Muslims who are connected to the Metropolitan Atlanta Area. The stories, photographs, and special mementos of this group primarily reflect an American people’s place in both Muslim history, the Civil Rights movement and the continuing Freedom Struggle.  This will only be showing for the month of February.
