I will be speaking at this panel discussion:
"At 110th & Lenox:
The Intersection of Hate, Faith, and Community"
"At 110th & Lenox," is a panel convened to discuss the aftermath of the hateful attack on Columbia Professor and Community Health Provider Dr. Prabhjot Singh. On Sept. 21, he was attacked by a group of young men who assailed him after yelling "get Osama" and "terrorist." The assailants went on to attack a Somali Muslim woman wearing hijab. Both victims were treated at Mount Sinai Hospital and released.
We hope the occasion will act as a springboard for discussion between student and faculty communities of Columbia University, activists and workers, and community leaders, in order to foster growth and strengthen relationships in the wake of the attack. Speakers and discussants will include activist Sonny Singh, Iman Konaté (Islamic Cultural Center of New York), Professor Manan Ahmed (History Department), and others.
Time: 7:00pm - 8:30pm
