“Straight Outta Palestine": a conversation with Janna Jihad and Dr. Marc Lamont Hill

  • Pearl Studios 500 8th Avenue New York, NY, 10018 United States (map)

Janna Jihad, who is the world's youngest recognized journalist and press card holder, will be joining us along with Marc Lamont Hill for an evening of conversation about growing up in the village of Nabi Saleh in the West Bank and the role of Palestinian youth in resisting the Israeli occupation. Janna's cousin, Ahed Tamimi, was arrested at the age of 16 in December 2017 and imprisoned for 8 months on trumped up charges. She began reporting on the occupation when she was seven years old after two of her family members were murdered by Israeli soldiers.

We hope that you can join us Thursday for what will be an extraordinary opportunity to learn from Janna and hear her talk with Marc Lamont Hill about the current state of the struggle for Palestinian liberation.
