Ayesha is a fictional character who is Muslim. She was born and raised in West Philadelphia and has selected a number of objects that reflect her life, culture, and heritage, which she would like to share with you. Shahadah Abdul-Rashid, program creator, will talk about the objects selected. Participants of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to attend and interact with the objects.
The Getting to Know Me: Ayesha trunk will remain at the Frankford library for a month following the program. A helpful object guide is included which explains what these objects are and how they connect to Ayesha.
Getting to Know Me: Ayesha is part of the In the Path of Islam brought to you by The Free Library of Philadelphia and The Building Bridges Program of the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art. Click here to browse a calendar of events. or contact us at [email protected]
