StoryCorps: Lila & Suehaila Amen

August 14th, 2012

America’s largest oral history project just wrapped up a month in Metro Detroit. StoryCorps' was an amazing success thanks to you, the storytellers, your friends and neighbors. The mobile booth spent time outside of the Carr Center in Detroit's Harmonie Park/Paradise Valley district and the Islamic Center of America in Dearborn. Today’s story comes from Lila and Suehaila Amen. Lila shares stories of how her daughter started wearing the hijab - a head scarf worn traditionally by many Muslim women.
