Mohamud Mumin’s 13 dramatically larger-than-life portraits feature young men who are actively and positively engaged in their Somali community and American society.
Through video and text, these men tell us of their personal journey from Somalia, the prejudices they face in the U.S., and about the work they are doing each day to improve the lives of others.
Presented as part of AANM’s continuing effort to dispel stereotypes and build community through the arts, this exhibition explores an emerging and often misunderstood community in America’s heartland.
