Windows and Mirrors artists reflect on their submissions
This event was recorded on November 5, 2010 at the Windows and Mirrors exhibit in Philadelphia. It was a two part event that featured Philadelphia area artists whose work is featured in the exhibit talking about their submissions. The second half featured poets and members of the Warrior Writers Project.
This recording is from the first half of the event.
Recorded on October 19th, 2010. This event discussed anti-Muslim rhetoric in the U.S. since the September 11th attacks. While some media commentators seem to be encouraging stereotypes and misconceptions, many interfaith dialogue groups have provided an opportunity for Americans to become more acquainted with Islam and American Muslims. They explore who makes up the American Muslim community, their positions on issues such as terrorism and the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, and why Islamophobia is on the increase today.
This presentation from the Windows and Mirrors exhibit in Philadelphia was the first in a series of events related to the exhibit. AFSC hopes to stimulate dialogue about the costs of the war in an effort to get Americans to push for peace in Afghanistan, and to resist future wars.
