  • 06/15/18--22:00: Billie Holiday's World
  • Billie Holiday still looms larger than life even close to 60 years after her death. At the nexus of complicated subjects like race, drugs, sexuality, & music, she acts as a compelling subject for those seeking to understand our society's trajectory, especially when religion is added as a layer to the experience. The Religion Around series seeks to look deeply into the relationships around our most evocative individuals, so it is no surprise that Penn State University Press asked Tracy Fessenden, interim director of the School of Historical, Philosophical and Religious Studies at Arizona State University, to write Religion Around Billie Holiday, or that the scrutiny yields Strange Fruit.

Sami shares a very different perspective of the cause and effect of the US invasion of Iraq, due to his vantage point on the ground in the country, and has put his life at the service of peace and healing for his country of birth.
