Imam Adeyinka Muhammad Mendes, a native Ohioan of Yoruba, Brazilian, and African American ancestry, embraced Islam at age 17 after a life-changing journey to Jerusalem. He studied history at Morehouse College, Arabic language and cultural studies at Ohio State University, as well as the spiritual, scholastic, and aesthetic disciplines of Muslim civilization by classical Muslim scholars and academics around the world. One of his many passions is “building bridges of peace and healing between diverse peoples.”
