Event description

Description

"Ask a Muslim Anything" is an ecumenical event on understanding and interfaith dialogue featuring noted journalist and educator Robert Azzi.

This is a two-part evening starting with an overview of the religion and history of Islam, especially during the Colonial Era of American history. A light dinner will be provided and then the program continues with an open Q&A session.

Nothing is off the table at the Q&A as Mr. Azzi is open to speak about his life, what it’s like to be Muslim in America, how he came to convert to Islam, and about the Middle East, terrorism and associated political and social issues.
