Reza AslanFear Inc.: Confronting Islamophobia in America Penn Museum, Harrison Auditorium, 3260 South Street

Featuring internationally renowned writer, commentator, professor, producer, and scholar of religions Reza Aslan.

Reza Aslan

In a world where Muslim people are so often colored by one sweeping prejudicial brush, Reza Aslan’s principled and logical defense is a direly needed corrective. In a talk rich in historical and factual detail, he will deliver a wake-up call for North Americans to confront and abolish hatred and discrimination against Muslim people—otherwise known as Islamophobia. As the American Muslim population is predicted to more than double over the next two decades (from 2.6 million in 2010 to 6.2 million in 2030), eradicating Islamophobia for good should be first and foremost in the minds of everyone who dreams of a more peaceful, equitable world.
