Millennium Voices--Fall 2001
Life After September 11--Understanding Our Changing World

The Millennium Voices presentations focusing on issues related to the September 11 terrorist attacks began as a four-part series. The interest and audience attendance has remained high, and the following presentations have been added.

All programs are held on Wednesdays on Central Campus in GA 301. Each program is being videotaped, and copies of these videos are available at the front desk of the library on each CPCC campus. Students are allowed to use the videos in the library, and faculty can check out the videos for use with classes.

November 7, 12:30 p.m. "Islam 101:  A Basic Introduction to Islam." Ammar Alyounes, Director of the Islamic Center of Charlotte, will present a lecture and facilitate open discussion about Islam, the faith of 7 million Americans and 1.2 billion people worldwide.

November 14, 12:45 p.m. "Harmonizing the Spirit of America and the Spirit of Islam:  What We Can Do." Dr. Haydar Sadig is a native of Sudan who is now a naturalized American citizen. His insightful opinions have been published in the Charlotte Observer, and he has been called upon to speak at local colleges in the wake of the events of September 11.
 
Please encourage your students and colleagues to attend these programs. For more information, contact Mark Helms at 6127.
