The Battalion (Texas A&M, College Station, TX)
November 1, 2004
Pamela Taylor, a Muslim storyteller, will perform "The Blessings of Ramadan: A Gift in Story" on campus Tuesday at the Texas A&M Sterling C. Evans Library. Taylor will explain how Allah revealed the first verses of the Quran, the holy book of Islam, to Prophet Muhammad.
The Multicultural Storytelling Project, a program of the A&M Libraries that seeks to promote the history, influences and values of the many cultures that have played a role in shaping American society, is sponsoring this event.
"Students need to be exposed to a variety of issues with an academic context because we have a very little exposure to all kinds of issues going on in the world,"
assistant lecturer for Sociology on Islamic Studies Mary Hovsepian said. "The more of a critical thinker a student is, the less close-minded he or she is."
