Join us for a free halal dinner and frank discussion about how Muslims are covered in the news at home and abroad. When should reporters mention the faith of a source? Are there stories that aren’t being covered? What terms should be avoided and more.
Imam Mahmoud Al-Denawy Hassanein of the Islamic Center of Little Rock will give a tour and share information about Islam. You’ll have the chance to ask questions and mingle with members of the center.
Our hope is that we can learn from each other, and that we come away with a better understanding of how to cover the Muslim community.
