Online exhibit explores Islam

 

The Kennesaw State University Museum of History and Holocaust Education has created its first online exhibit titled, “Identities: Understanding Islam in a Cross-Cultural Context,” focused on bringing about cultural understanding.

A free, public reception will be hosted by the MHHE at 4 p.m. July 11 at the KSU Center, 3333 Busbee Drive, Kennesaw. The exhibit’s website is http://marb.kennesaw.edu/identities.

Through photographs, oral histories, conversations and personal reflections, creators of the website hope to explore Moroccan and American identities.

The online exhibit is made possible by an $78,000 grant last July from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and American Association of Museums. The MHHE was one of only two institutions to receive the grant renewal as part of the AAM’s Museums & Community Collaborations Abroad program.
