This Muslim-American life: Sharing their stories

Kate Shellnutt by Kate Shellnutt

The Inner-City Muslim Action Network, a community organizing group based on Chicago’s South Side, brings together Muslims across races and backgrounds several times a year with Community Café, an event where Muslims (and non-Muslims, as well) are given a place to gather together and connect with one another.

This summer’s Community Café put Muslim-American stories in the spotlight—through music, spoken word, skits and even funny anecdotes from the “Hijabi Monologues.”

    In this great design of things you secure an A+ with regard to effort. Where you confused me personally was first on your particulars. You know, they say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be more true in this article. Having said that, permit me reveal to you precisely what did work. The authoring is definitely very convincing which is possibly why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. 2nd, despite the fact that I can see a leaps in logic you make, I am definitely not sure of exactly how you appear to connect the ideas that help to make the actual final result. For the moment I will, no doubt subscribe to your position but wish in the future you actually link the dots much better.
