---- — KINGSTON — Join us for Islam in the Media on Thurs., March 13 at 7:00 p.m. at the Sanborn Regional High School. Susan Douglass, from the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, will explore how we are exposed to Islam in the media. Terms such as jihad and hijab come across our news media on nearly a daily basis, becoming household words with no context. Douglass will provide approaches to these difficult topics, access to primary and secondary sources, and activities to help individuals engage critically with these issues.
