In “Somalis in Minnesota,” author Ahmed Ismail Yusuf writes about how the Somalia diaspora that began in 1992 has brought more than 50,000 Somalis to Minnesota. He tells readers about the economic, religious, political and cultural practices in the communities that have formed in areas such as Marshall and Minneapolis.

Minnesota is home to the largest populations of Somalis in the United States.
