Patel's presentation is sponsored by the OCU Distinguished Speaker Series and the Interfaith Alliance of Oklahoma. Patel, founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core, based in Chicago, is author of “Acts of Faith: The Story of an American Muslim, the Struggle for the Soul of a Generation” and “Sacred Ground: Pluralism, Prejudice, and the Promise of America.”
