In Memorium: Dr. Sulayman Nyang

The American Muslim community remembers his legacy

November 13, 2018

Today we reflect on the late Dr. Sulayman Nyang's legacy, professor and former chair of Howard University's African Studies Dept, former deputy ambassador of the Gambia Embassy in Saudi Arabia, 2005 MPAC Convention speaker, author, and mentor, who passed away on November 12th, 2018. 

Dr. Nyang was a major figurehead in the evolution of many important American Muslim organizations, ISNA and others, and will be sorely missed by the whole community. Our sincerest condolences and prayers go out to his loved ones, and all of the lives that he had touched.
