By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – Eboo Patel is American - and Muslim - and Indian. He grew up outside of Chicago dealing with racism and his own struggle to decide which of the three identities he would embrace. But Patel came to learn that the power to create change lies at the intersection of religion, ethnicity and nationality - not at the extremes. Eboo Patel is in Utah, and joins Doug in studio to talk about what he calls "the struggle for the soul of a generation."

On Monday, October 22nd at 7:00 p.m. at the Salt Lake City Public Library, Eboo Patel will give the Tanner Humanities Center's 2007 Sterling McMurrin Lecture on Religion and Culture. The lecture is entitled "The Faith Line: The Role of Young People in the 21st Century," and is free and open to the public. For more information, call 581-7989, or click here

Eboo Patel's lecture is presented in conjunction with the Utah Humanities Book Festival. For a full schedule of events, click here
