Overview

Al-Islam Mosque was founded in 1962 in a working class area of New Orleans. The head priest of the mosque is known as the 'Imam'. The mosque has a membership of about 200 people, mostly composed of African-Americans. But these have been dispersed by the Katrina hurricane. The place also attracts a lot of non-Muslim students of Islam, and Arabic language in particular, making it a symbol of cross-cultural exchange.
