The Modern Muslim Mind And Quest For A Brighter Future

Muslims today are challenged by extremism on one hand and atheism on the other.  They often find themselves portrayed in a negative light by the media,  and as a result are plagued by persecution.. How does this impact the lives of young Muslims?

This lecture will examine the impact  for one group as a case study: American Muslims.

It will draw upon years of survey research, media studies, and qualitative observations to paint a portrait of the modern Muslim mind and how to move forward to a brighter future.
