Wajahat Ali '07 Announces "The M Word"

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Aug 29, 2016

King Hall alum Wajahat Ali '07 wears many hats, including speaker, writer, playwright, and occasional TV pundit.

I received an e-mail from him today announcing his latest project:

We're excited to announce the launch of THE M WORD.

We've been working on this project over a year. It's a landmark series by PEN America in association with the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art highlighting American Muslim storytellers and their allies focusing on intersecting topics of identity, race, politics and media representation in the age of ISIS, Trump and Halal Shawarmas.

The New York Times did a nice, tasty write up today: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/29/arts/comedians-to-kick-off-new-pen-america-series-for-muslim-voices.html.

Congratulations, Waj!
