About the Event
Journalist Wajahat Ali’s memoir, Go Back to Where You Came From, offers indispensable lessons and strategies to help cultivate a more compassionate America, and national security correspondent Spencer Ackerman’s Reign of Terror examines the profound impact the War on Terror had in pushing American politics and society in an authoritarian direction. In a conversation moderated by Jenn White, host of WAMU’s “1A”, Ali and Ackerman will speak about their personal experiences and reporting, and how Millennial activists are pushing back on a rising tide of xenophobia.
