July 10, 2014

MPAC is co-sponsoring a discussion and book signing with Congressman Keith Ellison (D-MN) on Tuesday, July 15 with Busboys and Poets, Cnvrgnc, iEmerge786 and Crescent Moon Nights. Ellison will share his experiences as the first Muslim elected to Congress in his book "My Country 'Tis of Thee: My Family, My Faith, Our Future."

“My Country ‘Tis of Thee” provides a thought-provoking look at America and what needs to change to accommodate different races and beliefs. Ellison emanates from a district with less than 1 percent Muslims and 11 percent African Americans. His background provides him with a unique perspective on the challenges of uniting a disparate community and speaking to a common goal. Ellison will draw from his personal experiences, revealing his views on what divides Americans and what can bring us together. Overall, in his book, Ellison strives to help define what it means to be an American today. 

"My Country 'Tis of Thee: My Family, My Faith, Our Future"

When: Tuesday, July 15, 2014
6:30 to 8 p.m.

Where: Busboys and Poets (5th and K)
