One of the MSU Alumni Office’s long-standing featured offerings, the Coffee with the Profs series highlights research and work done by some of MSU’s finest faculty and staff. This lifelong education program is open to all.

A History of U.S. Muslims
Mohammad Hassan Khalil, director, Muslim Studies Program; professor, Department of Religious Studies; adjunct professor, College of Law
There is a rich and long history of Muslims in the United States. This is a diverse population that has included, among others, enslaved Africans; immigrants who established communities in cities such as Dearborn, MI and Ross, ND; and influential converts such as Alexander Russell Webb and Malcolm X. As we shall see, this is also a population that has greatly influenced American culture and politics in ways that may seem unexpected.
