Explore the concepts of faith, identity, personal journey, and safe havens through an overview of the American Medina exhibit from the Chicago History Museum and Sanctuary exhibit from the Aga Khan Museum. This discussion includes Dr. Peter T. Alter, Chief Historian from the Chicago History Museum, Dr. Michael Chagnon, Curator from the Aga Khan Museum, and moderated by Dr. Zahra Jamal of Rice University's Boniuk Institute of Religious Tolerance.
