The first in a series projects housed under the Religions Texas initiative, Muslim Voices is a community-based oral history project that records stories of the multifaceted lives of Muslims in Texas.
Texas is home to one of the largest Muslim populations in the country, along with many national and global centers of contemporary Muslim thought. Muslim communities are an important part of the landscape of Texas. Yet, the terrain of Islam in Texas is generally under-researched. We have launched an oral history project to chronicle the multifaceted lives of Muslims in Texas. Over the next year, student researchers and local community members will record and disseminate the stories of Muslims in the central Texas area.
