Our mission is to preserve America’s Islamic Heritage by collecting, archiving, and displaying artifacts, and historical documents. We provide arts, culture, and humanities programs about America’s rich Islamic history and diversity. Our goal is to establish a path and mechanism that will provide high quality art and humanities programs to promote collective understanding and social development for all Americans and particularly Ward 8 residents, using cultural enrichment programming. The purpose of AIHM is to serve as an instrument for Americans of all faiths, to learn and gain information of the rich history of Muslims in the United States.
