Check out the new Website!

At long last we can begin sharing the wonderful portraits and stories from Muslim North Carolinians. Take peak at their images in this you tube, then go to and enjoy their images, essays, and audio. (More of the latter to come.)

I am still traveling the state and can help a few more participants. Let me know if you are interested.

I will be inviting her to join this project.
