11:40AM Film Showing- Mooz-lum
Mooz-lum is a 2011 American independent film written and directed by Qasim “Q” Basir and starring Danny Glover. Mooz-lum (i.e. “Muslim”) tells the story of an African American Muslim family whose lives are changed by the September 11 attacks and their aftermath. Amid a strict Muslim rearing and a social life he’s never had, Tariq enters college confused. New peers, family and mentors help him find his place, but the 9-11 attacks force him to face his past and make the biggest decisions of his life.

1:00PM (Following the film, we will hold more discussion and a de-briefing of ideas raised in the context of current events)
