“The Muslims I Know”, An Invitation to Dialog

In “The Muslims I  Know“, Mara  introduces you to members of the community who whose lives in this country are in so many ways, little different from our own.   They enjoy the same parks and restaurants, attend the same schools and work in the same offiices.   More than that, they have the same hopes and fears, the same aspirations, and experience the same joys and sorrows.   But, they are people who chose to come to this country, and to stay, and to raise their families here.  These are the people who chose to be Americans.

In “The Muslims I Know”, Mara  engages each member of her entourage of Muslim Americans and their friends and neighbors to introduce him or herself and tell or show us something of their lives here and now,  intertwining their stories and familiar images of the local community with images of her birthplace,  Lahore Pakistan, and the culture in which she has her roots.

My Name is Khan: showing in Irondequoit

In response to Call for Unity and Solidarity by STARI, a National Coalition to

Stand Together Against Racism and Islamophobia

Rochester Peace Action and Education Presents

The Award-Winning Film

My Name is Khan

Tuesday, February 16, 6:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Irondequoit Town Library, Rm: Irondequoit Bay
1290 Titus Avenue, Rochester, NY 14617 (Enter from Kings Hwy)
** Free and Open to the Public **

My Name is Khan was Bollywood’s response to the anti-immigrant sentiment, dubbed Islamophobia, that arose in the United States after 9/11.               Today, exaggerated fears of ISIS and Syrian refugees have once again fueled the ugliness of Islamophobia, with attacks on mosques and vicious political rhetoric.

Due to the devastation caused by wars in the Middle East, Americans are once again allowing insecurity to overcome their compassion and good will.   Once again Americans are challenged to open our hearts to strangers.   It is good to be reminded of how our world looks to them.           You might be pleasantly surprised.
