Once a student of Dr. Hathout’s in the pioneering days of the Islamic Center of Southern California’s Youth Group — one of the first co-ed Muslim youth groups in the nation — Omar Ricci was instilled with pride in his Muslim American Identity early on. Now a businessman and reserve officer with the LAPD, Omar joins Dr. Hathout in this episode which tackles where the idea of an American Muslim identity came from, how it’s evolved, and what it means in our daily lives.
