Coloradoans Remember 9/11: Colorado’s Muslim Community


On September 11th, 2001, Sahar Babak was a senior at Rocky Mountain High School in Fort Collins. Before the terrorist attacks, no one really paid attention to her religion. But that quickly changed. Sahar was one of many Muslim-Americans in Fort Collins who helped sociologist Lori Peek with her book “Behind the Backlash: Muslim Americans After 9/11”. Peek teaches at Colorado State University.
