Join Professor of Law Khaled Beydoun in a discussion about his book American Islamophobia, which explores the rise and roots of fear surrounding Muslims in the United States. At the event, he will talk about race, white supremacy, and how Islamophobia has become embedded within the U.S. legal system. As a critical race theorist and civil rights lawyer, Beydoun incorporates an intersectional approach to his work, centering the experiences of Muslim women, Black Muslims, and Latinx Muslims. Beydoun also discusses the scope and impact of the domestic “War on Terror” legislation, and how it racialized Muslims, transforming everyday life within Muslim communities.
There will be an opportunity for questions and discussion afterward, as well as a book signing with Professor Beydoun. Dinner and refreshments will be provided! You can reserve your tickets here:
