Many months ago, I was invited to Duke University to speak to their students and accepted the invitation gladly. The Alexander Hamilton Society posted an event on their FaceBook page and distributed a flyer showing their full support.
Just days before I was to leave, the Duke Muslim Students Association determined that my presence on campus was worthy of harsh words and a possible protest and the Alexander Hamilton Society withdrew their support of the event.
Below are links to articles published in the Duke Chronicle along with my response.
