Critical Conversations: Women in Religions Christians and Muslims
Join the Academy of Faith and Leadership and Masjid As-Salaam for a special presentation by Dr. Debra Majeed, Professor of Religious Studies at Beloit College in Wisconsin and a response by the Reverend Dr. Ellen Skidmore, Senior Pastor of Forest Lake Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC for Critical Conversations: Women in Religion Christians and Muslims. This Critical Conversation is meant to challenge our assumptions about women in religion in Islam and Christianity and to provoke conversations that might lead to respect and appreciate of each other.
Debra Majeed, professor of religious studies at Beloit College, is a religious historian who has made the interconnection between religion, gender and justice central to her life’s work. She is the first African American female and first Muslim to be tenured in the 173-year history of Beloit College.
