Trump as our next President of the United States in November – 2016 has been a banner year of issues, controversies, election coverage and the loss of some great Muslims.
At Altmuslim, we’ve tried to cover the major challenges, issues, stories and events pertaining to the American Muslim (and global Muslim) community by offering nuanced and (hopefully) insightful and unique perspectives. And, if we’ve done our job well, you can get a good feel for what was on the pulse of American Muslim communities by looking back at our coverage, month-by-month. With that in mind, here is a look back at what we were dealing/living with and what was on our minds in 2016.
