"So let there be no doubt: Islam is a part of America", President Barack Hussein Obama's speech to the Muslim World, Cario Egypt, June 4, 2009.

After ten years of making the case for Islam's contribution to American life and the World community, IMMC's work is finally recognized.  The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) selects IMMC and Tougaloo College to lead national efforts to help the American public better understand this very fact, that "Islam is a part of America."  IMMC and Tougaloo College were amoung the eight first grant recipients out of ninety-two applicants to recieve NEH's Bridging Cultures Initiative major grant funding.  This initiative is a by-product of President Obama's partnership with the Muslim World that began in June 2009.

To strengthen its capacity for carrying out the project, IMMC is expanding our family and friends to share in this extraordinary opprotunity.  We, therefore, invite you to, please, join us in opening the door of understanding to our many cultural and faith communities in America.

"In the last millennium an important global legacy was uncovered—the literate culture of AFRICA!"

This legacy lives in the extraordinary richness of historical manuscripts that still survive.
