Haroon Moghul - How to Be a Muslim: An American Story — in conversation with Wajahat Ali

Upcoming Event
Thursday, August 17, 2017 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Moghul became a public presence in the wake of 9/11, speaking out as an undergraduate leader at NYU’s Islamic Center. He was only just beginning to work out his personal relationship to Islam, and his memoir traces his struggle to come to terms with a faith he had long felt ambivalent about. Growing up, Moghul, a second-generation immigrant, wanted a typical American childhood. But his was complicated by encounters with anti-Muslim bias, bouts of depression, and his own reservations about many aspects of his Islamic heritage. Now a senior fellow and director of development at the Center for Global Policy, as well as the Fellow in Jewish-Muslim Relations at the Shalom Hartman Institute, Moghul writes honestly about identity as a work in progress.

Moghul will be in conversation with Wajahat Ali, author of the play Domestic Crusaders and lead author of the investigative report Fear, Inc.
