Abu Noor AbdulMalik Ryan is a Chicago native whose reading of African American history and specifically the life of Malcolm X led to his accepting Islam in 1994.  He was one of the founding members and is a past president of the Board of Directors of the Inner City Muslim Action Network, better known as IMAN.  After receiving his undergraduate degree from DePaul University, he went on to obtain his law degree from Georgetown University in Washington DC.  He spent 14 years working as an attorney for children in Chicago’s foster care system before he transitioned into his current full time role as the Assistant Director for Religious Diversity at DePaul University.
