Chambers, who will introduce, Muslim Slaves in the American South, which will present a general outline of the historical presence of Muslim slaves, though relatively few in number in the American South, in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
This series is part of an initiative, Bridging Cultures Bookshelf: Muslim Journeys, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities and is a collaboration between the Department of Philosophy and Religion and University Libraries.
