Attention San Francisco Bay Area Folks:

The Bay Area premiere of  ”Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think” will be screened at 5 p.m., Saturday, February 20, at the Islamic Cultural Center of Northern California in Oakland. For details go to the ICCNC website.  Admission is $15 at the door. Doors open at 4 p.m.

The film is a documentary based on the Gallup Poll of Worldwide Muslim Public Opinion. Executive producers are Alex Kronemer and Michael Wolfe.

This Gallup Poll was a very big project. I’m curious about how this documentary uses the material.

John Esposito, Professor of Religion and International Affairs at Georgetown University and author of  The Future of Islam, will deliver a keynote address.  Also present for discussion will be Hamza van Boom and author Sumbul Ali-Karamali.

Sumbul is a writing buddy of mine from the Religion Newswriters Association. A neat lady and an attorney, her book takes a thoughtful look at Islamic law. If you can’t make the event, do check out her book. Also, she’ll be speaking on Shari’ah Law at the Commonwealth Club public forum in San Francisco on March 11.
