“We are misrepresented, and we just basically want everyone in the area to know that we have nothing that we are ashamed of. We want to welcome them to our houses of worship,” Angela Odeh, Coordinator of the Muslims in Memphis event.
Events for the Muslims in Memphis will go on for the whole month of March.
On Tuesday the group will hold an Islamic art presentation and exhibit at the Cordova library from 5 to 7 p.m.
