What does it feel like to grow up Muslim in today’s world? A panel of Muslim parents will discuss their experiences as they and their children grew up in the Baltimore area. They will talk about experiences related to school, dating, work, and other situations where they interact with non-Muslims. Panelists will represent differing levels of acculturation along with the diversity that exists within and between Muslim communities. Religiously conservative Islamic believers and secular Muslims will discuss their experiences, and invite your questions. This event is co-sponsored by Adult Religious Exploration and Youth Religious Exploration because we believe that it will provide useful information to community members of all ages.
