Muslims of Skokie

Muslims of Skokie is an exhibit featuring portraits and stories from local residents. These men and women represent just a small fraction of the diversity of Muslims in Skokie and in the larger community. Meet your Muslim neighbors and read, in their words, how their identities as Muslims affects who they are and how they live in the world.

The exhibit was created as part of Coming Together in Skokie and Niles Township 2018: Celebrating Muslim American CultureS. All portraits were taken by library staff photographer, Max Herman. It will be on view until March 19. You may also view the portraits online.

The library is hosting a reception for the exhibit on March 15 at 6:30 PM. Registration opens March 1.
