Friday, February 26
Whitley Auditorium, 7:30 p.m.
Stories and experiences by American Muslim women will be offered in a space where Muslim women can speak openly about their experiences as women, as humans and as Americans. With drama and humor, the project brings to life the diversity of Muslim-American experiences, and engages issues of race, gender and religious tolerance through stories that also challenge violence and hatred.
Hijabi Monologues have performed at colleges and universities throughout the United States and Europe, and they lead storytelling and identity workshops that empower others to tell their own stories. This public event is also part of the Ripple Conference, a regional gathering of college students for interfaith exploration and leadership development.
Sponsored by the Truitt Center for Religious and Spiritual Life; the Center for the Study of Religion, Culture & Society; the Office of Inclusive Community; and the Center for Race, Ethnicity and Diversity Education
