Project Report | Sep 12, 2022
Updates on the Muslim American Journeys Project

By Andrew McDonald | Operations Manager

As we enter the fall season, we at MALA are lookin g back on a challenging year.  Like many organizations, MALA has continued to feel the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, as we attempt to navigate a world in which human connection is increasingly being facilitated in the virtual space.  However, as society begins to open up again, we are excited to be collecting oral histories in person once again.  

This fall, MALA is re-engaging with our New York constituency and working to collect new and exciting stories from Muslim American communities in the region.  In support of this effort, we are also overhauling some of the tools of our trade: in order to record and produce these stories, MALA will need to update our recording devices to ensure that we are using equipment that is reliable, accurate, and efficient.

In addition to audio recordings, MALA is working to develop a space to record oral histories using video footage of storytellers.  This approach will allow those who engage with MALA's oral histories to experience a closer connection with storytellers and will allow stories to be shared across a broader range of media.  

MALA has always been dedicated not only to collecting oral histories, but to ensuring that those stories are shared widely, ensuring that they live on as a resource for learning, cultural connection, and community building.  By supporting Muslim American Journeys, you help to make these stories more accessible than ever before, and ensure that Muslim narratives remain a part of the American story for years to come.
