In Context: Unbound: Malala Yousafzai

BAM welcomes Nobel Peace Prize laureate and New York Times bestselling author Malala Yousafzai (I Am Malala and Malala’s Magic Pencil) to discuss her powerful new book, We Are Displaced: My Journey and Stories from Refugee Girls Around the World. New York Times journalist Rukmini Callimachi leads this powerful discussion about the displacement of millions worldwide through the lens of Yousafzai’s own stunning account of the girls she’s met in refugee camps and cities—girls who have lost their community, relatives, and often the only world they've ever known. Context is everything, so we’ve provided some articles to read and videos to watch.
