Destroyed by hate; rebuilt through compassion.
Join us for a screening of the documentary An American Mosque and a discussion with the award-winning filmmaker David Washburn. The film tells the story of a newly built mosque in a rural California community that was destroyed in an arson attack. The mosque has been rebuilt, this time with the support of people from various faith traditions. In this film, members of the community and those who rallied around them speak passionately about their experiences and the triumph of hope over hate.
Sponsored by: The Addir Interfaith Dialogue, the Aga Khan Documentation Center at MIT, the MIT Libraries’ Committee for the Promotion of Diversity and Inclusion, and Robert Randolph, Chaplain to the Institute.
