Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys, American Stories
7 p.m., Tuesday February 11
Muslims' stories draw attention to ways in which people of varying religious, cultural, ethnic and racial backgrounds interact to shape both their communities’ identities and our nation’s collective past,” Winn said. “The actual history of Muslims in America tells the story of people who are both Muslim and American, even if tension exists and challenges us as we strive to realize our founding ideals of equality and pluralism.
The third book in the series, Acts of Faith by Eboo Patel is about growing up Muslim in America and duality of faith and identity.
At each session in the five-part series, a humanities scholar makes a presentation on the book in the context of the theme. Small group discussions follow with experienced discussion leaders. At the end, all participants come together for a brief wrap-up.
