Hill College Sociology Professor Dr. Mike Itashiki will host a panel discussion titled, "Ask a Muslim," in his sociology class featuring Muslim students and faculty. The panel is open to the public, as well as faculty, staff and students, and will be held Tuesday, Feb. 19, from 9:30 to 10:50 a.m., at the Hill College Burleson Center, Room 116. 

The purpose of this discussion is to explore current issues which concern local Muslims and are of interest to social scientists. Feb. 19 is also The Day of Remembrance, commemorating the internment of Japanese-American citizens during World War II, including Dr. Itashiki's father. There are parallel events and issues between the Japanese-Americans then and Muslim-Americans now, which will be explored.
