TALK OF THE WEEK

‘A Young Poet Tells the Story of Darfur’ •  Emtithal Mahmoud

“When someone is standing in front of you, mind, body and soul, saying “Witness me,” it’s impossible not to become keenly aware of your own humanity.” Emtithal “Emi” Mahmoud writes poetry of resilience, confronting her experience of escaping the genocide in Darfur in verse. She dedicates her time to spreading understanding through poetry and advocacy, particularly for the cause of refugees and disadvantaged communities the world over. In this dazzling and original Ted talk, she shares two stirring original poems.
