Listen to our latest inSocialWork podcast episode 209 with Dr. Omid Safi on "Islamophobia" in America, interviewed by Assistant Professor Isok Kim.
Muslims have been part of the fabric of America for more than five hundred years. There were likely Muslim members of Columbus's crew when they arrived in the American hemisphere in 1492. Trans-Atlantic slavery would have certainly brought to this country Africans who practiced Islam. During the ratification of the United States Constitution, concern was voiced that one day there might be a Muslim president. Yet in the early 1800's, the Ramadan fast was once ended in the White House. In this podcast, our guest Dr. Omid Safi examines the complex history of Muslims in America. In doing so, his discussion helps us to more fully understand the impact of "Islamophoboia" in the United States.
Omid Safi, PhD, is director of Duke University's Islamic Studies Center. He is the past chair for the Study of Islam and the current chair for the Islamic Mysticism Group at the American Academy of Religion. http://ht.ly/rucK309fsFm

Research by Assistant Professor Noelle St. Vil showed that African-American women in abusive relationships use a variety of strategies to survive intimate partner violence. "There's this stereotype that African-American women who experience abuse are probably reacting to it a certain way, but there is a range of responses," she said. "Some fight back, some turn to prayer, some turn to family and friends, and others turn to law enforcement or other outlets." http://ht.ly/Zb5j30853m7
