The Library of Congress Plans Workshop Series on Islamic Culture

The Library of Congress’ African and Middle Eastern Division is hosting a series of four online workshops to help people understand Islam and Islamic culture. The first, a screening and discussion of the film Prince Among Slaves, will be held on June 17, 2022. The film is “focused on the true story of Abdul Rahman Ibrahima Sori, an African prince enslaved in the American south. Workshop participants will be able to ask questions to the speakers and will also receive a list of library resources to further explore the topics.” Participants can join live via Zoom, and a condensed version of each workshop will be available online for on-demand viewing.

The next workshops will be An Introduction to Islam in Africa on Sept. 22, Contemporary Islamic Culture in Africa and the Middle East on Oct. 20, and Islam in East Africa (Uganda, Somalia, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Tanzania) on Nov. 10. Each workshop will be led by educators, researchers, and historians. The series is part of the Exploring Challenging Conversations project, funded by Lilly Endowment, Inc.
