The Meyer Theatre filled up fast for a forum hosted by the International Studies Club about ISIS.
Speakers Joanna Sabo, Sheryl Edwards, and Ali G. Awadi spoke to the crowded theatre about the crisis in Iraq and Syria.
Sabo first outlined the situation, before handing the stage over to Edwards, who is a professor of Political Science at UM Dearborn.
Edwards provided background about where and why ISIS was formed and how the group has evolved in recent years.
Awadi, a professor of leadership at Henry Ford College, then offered the perspective of a Muslim-American.
He explained that ISIS is rounding up all walks of people to join in its terrorism.
