Armacost Library, Campus Diversity & Inclusion, Redlands Peace Academy, and A.K. Smiley Public Library have received funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Library Association to host events that highlight Islam and the cultures, histories, and stories of Muslims in the United States and around the world.

The first film screening for our Let's Talk About It: Muslim Journeys Film Series will be a showing of My Name Is Khan. The film tells the story of the journey of a Muslim Indian man to regain the love and trust of his wife after a family tragedy. Please be advised that My Name Is Khan runs for 161 minutes. Dr. Priya Jha, Associate Professor of English at University of Redlands, will facilitate a question-and-answer session following the screening, time permitting. This event will be held on Thursday, January 23, 2014 at Gregory Hall, Room 161, from 6 to 9 p.m.
