Film, Discussion Look at Middle East Peace

Tuesday, Feb. 28 at 6:30pm in Crider Hall (Boyd), UWG Amnesty, The Fish House (Wesleyan student group), and the English and Philosophy Department are co-sponsoring the showing of a film, "Little Town of Bethlehem," and a panel afterward.

The film is a documentary featuring the stories of a Jew, a Christian, and a Muslim who are committed to peace in the Middle East. Our panelists will reflect these three faiths, and we are hoping that students will come and engage the film and the speakers to learn both about the situation in the Middle East, but also how a commitment to peace might be important in our
national and local setting.

  1. If you’re interested in the Middle East and have something to say about the changes that have occurred in the last year, you may be interested in the Dream Deferred Essay Contest. The name of the contest was inspired by a 1951 Langston Hughes poem, What happens to a dream deferred? Just as the Langston Hughes poem helped inspire the civil rights movement, the contest sponsors feel that essay contest will also be regarded as an opportunity for American and Middle Eastern youth to unite over the issue of advancing civil liberties in the Middle East.
