Muslim Journeys: Four Days of Discovery and Explorations of Islam

This year, the Jefferson Community College was chosen as a recipient for the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (check-out the list of books on our libguide).  

This grant is part of a larger effort by the NEH to fund projects that engage "the power of the humanities to promote understanding of and mutual respect for people with diverse histories, cultures, and perspectives within the United States and abroad."  

Join us next week as the college offers four days of programming related to the themes represented by the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf collection (American Stories,Connected Histories, Literary Reflections, Pathways of Faith, and Points of View).
