Ryan Collins

“West African Muslim Societies and their Contributions to World and U.S. Culture,” a free lecture and panel discussion, will take place at 7 p.m. at the second floor Lecture Hall in Oscar Ritchie Hall.

The Department of Pan-African Studies at Kent State University and the Office of Student Life at Cuyahoga Community College are putting on the event, with an early meet and greet of the panelists beginning at 5:30 p.m.

Wendy Wilson-Fall, chair of the department of Pan-African Studies said a short reception will follow from 6:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

“One of the overriding themes is African Muslim immigrants in the United States who are kind of an invisible group,” Wilson-Fall said.
