Dr. Jack G. Shaheen, internationally acclaimed author and media critic, delivered the 12th annual Maryse and Ramzy Mikhail Memorial Lecture in the Law Center Auditorium on The University of Toledo’s Main Campus.
The title of his talk was “Images of Arabs and Muslims in Popular Culture: Problems and Prospects.”
He is a committed internationalist and a devoted humanist. A Pittsburgh native and former CBS news consultant on Middle East Affairs, Shaheen’s lectures and writings illustrate that damaging racial and ethnic stereotypes of Asians, blacks, Native Americans and others injure innocent people. He defines crude caricatures, explains why they persist, and provides workable solutions to help shatter misperceptions.
