Feb. 1: Arab-American Author James Zogby To Visit

James Zogby—Arab-American analyst, activist and author—will be visiting MDC on Feb. 1 at 7 p.m. at Wolfson Campus Auditorium, 300 N.E. Second Ave., Room 1206.

Zogby—founder and president of the Arab American Institute— has recently released his new book, Arab Voices: What They Are Saying to Us and Why It Matters, and will host a seminar in reference to his recent research with MDC students. After the forum, his book will be available for sale and an autograph session will be held.

Zogby’s new release is a product of research done from 2009-2010 via polls conducted in various Arab nations.

The primary discussion concerns Middle-Eastern people’s views on themselves and the stereotypes western cultures cast upon them.

The event is free and open to the public.
