Interdisciplinary Islamic Studies Seminar. Muslim Graves in Southeast Michigan
These stones show the exceptional diversity of cultures, religious traditions, national styles, and personal expression. A gravestone is not about death. It is about life. It is about what you valued, what was important to you, and how you want to be remembered. This lecture will shed light on what it means to be Muslim in America.
An exhibit including 39 photographs of gravestones which demonstrate the incredible diversity of this complex population will be on display in the International Institute Gallery (1080 S. University) through April 5, 2017.
