Waziristan to Washington: A Muslim at the Crossroads


Written & Performed by Akbar Ahmed
Directed by Stephen Stern

March 23 at 7:30 pm

In the post 9/11 world, one of the world’s leading authorities on Islam is
forced to explain his culture and his people's history to a hostile Western
World. Akbar Ahmed-—anthropologist, former Pakistani High Commissioner and Oprah Winfrey's go-to guest on Muslim issues takes us back to his birthplace and traces the evolution of modern Pakistan, the attempts to achieve integration in the modern world, and the rise of Islamic extremism in the face of Western ignorance.  A moving, multi-media memoir presented in partnership with the 16th Street J’s Dialogues and Public Affairs Program.
