Panelists include Shahid Rahman, Executive Director of the American Muslim Institution; Dr. Margaret Johnson, President of Ezher Bloom Mosque; and Marjan Naderi, high school student and poet.
A recent poll indicates that only one-third of residents in the DC/Maryland/Virginia metropolitan area know a Muslim person. Such a situation leads to many misconceptions and stereotypes, and it is often difficult to sift through fact and fiction. And even if you want to learn about Islam or Muslims, who do you ask and how do you ask politely? Join panel of American Muslims for an interactive discussion in a safe space to ask questions and to learn. The program has been organized by Shahid Rahman of the DC-based American Muslim Institution.
It will be held on Saturday, January 12, from 2 to 4 p.m. in McCathran Hall. The Recreation Committee will provide refreshments. If you have questions, please call Judy Mroczka at 301 785-3491.
