Participants will be given an "identity" when they come in with background information on the identity as well as a daily schedule for their identity; each "person" comes from a Muslim background, but has other important defining characteristics. Participants will read about it - max 15 min, and then there will be open discussion about the different intersections of Muslim identities - such as race, sexuality, class, origin, gender, etc. This discussion will focus on general aspects of the Islamic identity and specific details of religious texts and scholarly works. Afterwards, each participant will be able to share their understanding of the identity they received and how their identity is reflective of the dialogues - and a facilitation to deconstruct the different layers of the identity will take place. At the conclusion of the event, participants will be able to ask questions and also learn more general information if they would like. The purpose of the event is to give an authentic representation of an American Muslim today, and provide a day-to-day representation of a Muslim in action.
