Lecture with author - Islam without Extremes

A journalist who covers political movements in the Middle East will talk about the latest democratic trends in that region during a presentation at Oklahoma City University at 6 p.m. April 13.

Mustafa Akyol’s presentation, titled “Opportunities for Democracy and Liberties in the Middle East,” is free to the public and will be held in the Meinders School of Business at N.W. 27th Street and McKinley Avenue.

Akyol, a Turkish journalist and author, wrote the book “Islam without Extremes” in which he calls for “an interpretation of Islam that synthesizes liberal ideas and respect for the Islamic tradition.” His articles have appeared in The Washington Post, Wall Street Journal, Newsweek and other national media sources.
