Precious Rasheeda Muhammad, a.k.a. “The History Detective,” is an independent scholar, author, lecturer, and researcher widely recognized for her original research contributions to the study of Islam in America, including her discovery of a forgotten 224- page autobiography of an African of Muslim heritage who served in the American Civil War; her “Presidential Engagement with Muslim Communities” exhibit for the U.S. Department of State; and her “Muslims and the Making of America” special report published by the Muslim Public Affairs Council and widely-distributed to hundreds of policymakers and change-makers in Washington, D.C., including members of Congress and White House officials. Though a lot of Precious’s contributions have been behind the scenes, consulting and advising, her public contributions can be found in academic journals, newspapers, magazines, encyclopedias, exhibits, award-winning books; on CNN.Com and NPR; at the Smithsonian; and more. One of her current projects includes co-authoring a textbook on the history of Islam in America with a college professor. Precious also brings decades of commitment to interfaith work, including chaplaincy work at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, a 770-bed hospital in Boston, Massachusetts, and significant roles in planning and implementing the 2009 Parliament of the World’s Religions program held in Melbourne, Australia. Her personal and professional motto is“Building community through History.” For her community-building work, in the academic community and beyond, Coe College awarded Precious an honorary doctorate in 2010. For those contributions and helping change the way that Harvard looks at Islam, as an area of study, Precious earned the special honor of becoming a Harvard Divinity School Bicentennial Peter J. Gomes STB '68 Honoree in 2017. These words of one of her heroes, Imam W.D. Mohammed, is an inspiration for her life’s work: “The highest purpose for human life and existence is community life.” More info on her work can be found here: preciousspeaks.com.
