Kick off Women’s Month than with the true story one of the most beautiful female vocalists in popular music history, Carole King.

Mosque Tour in Memphis
Various locations, See website for more information
Sat., March 4, 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
In the 90s, I was asked to help with a university student project by editing a video interview of an Imam (religious leader) at a local mosque. I was not able to film the interview as it was conducted in an all male area. The point of the interview was to communicate a better understanding of Islamic beliefs amid the ongoing turmoil in the Middle East. Ten years later I was able to visit Jerusalem and really see the birthplace of Islam and it’s shared history with Judaism and Christianity. My curiosity and the experiences led to a better understanding of a very mysterious religion to most Westerners. Are you curious? Come get your questions answered and meet Muslims who live in the community. Refreshments will be served to public and meals will be served for police in the area at "Cop Stops".
