EVENT: Covering and Uncovering Islam

April 25, 2009


The American Society for Muslim Advancement and Cordoba Initiative are pleased to invite you to a panel discussion featuring:

Rachel Zoll (Associated Press), Deborah Amos (National Public Radio), Mohamad Bazzy (Newsday’s Former Mideast Bureau Chief), Noreen Ahmed-Ullah (Chicago Tribune), Neil MacFarquhar (New York Times), Bobby Ghosh (Time Magazine)

In the last decade, leading journalists have faced challenges reporting on Muslims, their cultures and the politics associated with them to American and international media consumers. Each of these reporters has had to learn largely “on the job” through their interactions with Muslim leaders and communities. In “Covering and Uncovering Islam in the Media”, prominent reporters will share their victories, trials, and errors in covering Muslim issues and discuss what must be done to improve the image of Islam in modern media.

An open microphone session will follow.

Date: Saturday, April 25, 2009
Time: 6:30pm – 8:30pm
Location: Chapel, The Interchurch Center, 61 Claremont Avenue, Between 119th and 120th Street (Near Columbia University) Subway #1 to 116th Street
