On Tuesday, April 11 at 6 p.m. and Saturday, April 22 at 4:30 p.m., the Islamic Speakers Bureau of Atlanta will present "American Muslims: Beliefs and Practices." These events are free and open to the public, and will be held at Synchronicity Theatre.
"American Muslims: Beliefs and Practices" provides an overview on terminology, demographics, diversity, beliefs, practices, holidays and values of American Muslims. It also discusses some of the misperceptions people have about women in Islam and terrorism.
It will be followed by a question and answer segment.
These presentations are hosted in conjunction with a series of events and post-moderated discussions with community partners during the run of Andrea Lepcio's STRAIT OF GIBRALTAR, March 31-April 23, 2017.
ABOUT THE PLAY
The world premiere of Strait of Gibraltar by Andrea Lepcio is a sexy romance turned terrorism thriller. Miriam, a Jewish woman, and Zameer, a Muslim man from Morocco, meet at a party and fall in love at first sight. When Zameer tells Miriam he's undocumented, she offers to help; but, is everything as it seems? A smart, riveting play that looks at love, truth, prejudice, and civil rights in the age of the Patriot Act. Tickets and information can be found at synchrotheatre.com.
