Her lecture takes its name from her forthcoming book, in which she compares the experiences of the Muslim immigrant to the discriminatory treatment faced by Jews, Mormons and African American Muslims. In her talk, she will explore what it means to have religious freedom in the United States’ current multiracial and multireligious society.   Learn more
