We Are Displaced with Malala Yousafzai
Featuring special guests Dr Maliha Khan, UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Muzoon Almellehan, Marie Claire Kaberamanzi and Zaynab Abdi, to mark the paperback publication of We Are Displaced.
This event is now available on demand until 17th April 2021. If you have any questions please email [email protected]
In I Am Malala, Nobel Peace Prize Winner and activist Malala Yousafzai told a story of bravery and survival that became a symbol of resistance around the world. Her new book, We Are Displaced, is her powerful and timely follow-up; part memoir, part communal storytelling, this is a work of oral history that serves as an astonishing reminder of the collective power of personal testimony.
Join Malala for this exclusive free event, as she celebrates the paperback publication of her powerful and emotional New York Times bestseller by introducing some of the faces behind the statistics and news stories we read or hear every day about the millions of people displaced worldwide.
Interwoven with her own experiences with displacement and her story of adjusting to a new life while longing for home, Malala will share moving and inspiring true accounts of the refugee experience from some of the incredible girls and women she has encountered who have lost their community, family and often the only world they have ever known. In conversation with two of the women featured in the book - UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Muzoon Almellehan, Marie Claire Kaberamanzi and Zaynab Abdi - Malala reflects on their accounts of hope and resilience and reveals the harrowing realities of what it means to be a migrant in today’s world.
In a time of immigration crises, war and border conflicts, this poignant and at times harrowing event is a timely reminder from one of the world's most prominent young activists that crucially puts a human face to what is all too often reduced to a catalogue of statistics.
