This book documents the history of the Muslim community in the United States, and particularly in California, and the foundation and evolution of the Southern California Islamic Center. The associated digital archive was built in an ongoing project with the University of California, Los Angeles.
This substantial work of social history analyses the Islamic Center’s work from 1953 to 1977 as it tries to establish itself within the mosaic of Southern Californian society.
The work of the Islamic Centre has hardly been documented in the literature, and the social history of the wider Muslim Community in the USA is arguably under-researched. This is a unique and important contribution, of interest to historians, social scientists and students of race and religion in America.
Author: Dr. Mostafa Hashem Sherif retired from AT&T in 2017. He is a senior member of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers. He lives in Washington State, USA
