Palestinian rights activist Yousef Aljamal on a speaking tour that will take him to the Greater NYC area, the Washington DC area, Atlanta, Milwaukee, Madison (WI), and Portland (OR). From Portland he’ll travel to Honolulu where he has another whole program arranged.
This is Yousef’s second time touring the United States. In 2014, he was part of a team that toured the country under the auspices of Just World Books and the American Friends Service Committee. They were launching the anthology Gaza Writes Back: Short Stories from Young Writers in Gaza Palestine, to which Yousef contributed a very moving story.
Come hear Yousef Aljamal speak. He is a Palestinian journalist, writer, and translator, contributor to “Gaza Writes Back” and English translator of “Dreaming of Freedom: Palestinian Child Prisoners Speak". Aljamal reports frequently from Gaza.
