Must-attend discussion today. Be there!

Discussion: Racism in Lebanon- the case of the Sudanese migrant workers

This Thursday at 7 pm, we are gladly hosting a discussion in Nasawiya by Professor Elmoiz Abunura.
"Victims of two worlds: Racism in Lebanon and Sudanese Migrant Workers"

Professor Elmoiz Abunura, a Sudanese national who resides in the USA wears many hats.
- A former prisoner of conscious in Iraq 1975 and active member of Amnesty international
- A former director of Africana Studies program at the University of North Carolina at Asheville, and professor of Political Science.
- Currently , an energy and political consultant on the Middle East and Africa.

In a nutshell, he is as a global villager who grew up, and studied in Sudan, Iraq, the Netherlands, and after the National Islamic Movement ascended to power in Sudan in 1989, he was forced to leave the country in a political purge just like many others and settle in the USA.

He is a proud parent of Ghassan, and Marwan.

He has been in Lebanon for 2 years and is here to speak to us and share with us experiences and learnings from those past years.

The discussion will mostly be in Arabic.
