KALAMAZOO--Writer, lecturer and documentary producer Alexander Kronemer addresses "Islam, Muhammad...America?" in a program presented by the Muslim Student Association at Western Michigan University at 6 p.m. Thursday, April 7, in the North Ballroom of the Bernhard Center. The free, public program includes a dinner of international cuisine, student exhibits, the lecture and an open discussion. Seating is limited and reservations are required by Friday, April 1.

Together with Michael Wolfe, Kronemer created and produced the 2002 PBS documentary "Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet." In his April 7 talk, Kronemer will discuss how, long after Muhammad's death, his cultural traditions and values spread throughout the Eastern world. The major content of Kronemer's speech will deal with the Prophet Muhammad's traditions--now known collectively as Islam--and their impact on the Western world, specifically the United States.
