Women's Rights. Emi Mahmoud.


Emi Mahmoud’s talk is a powerful combination of spoken word poetry along with insightful reflections on her childhood as a former refugee from Sudan growing up in Yemen and the United States. Her poems speak to the emotions that bind us all: fear, compassion, strength, vulnerability and ultimately love. (Recorded at TEDxKakumaCamp on June 9, 2018) Sudanese-American Slam Poet and UNHCR Goodwill Ambassador Emi Mahmoud uses evocative spoken word poetry to build compassion for refugees. An activist, author, a graduate from Yale University and once a refugee herself, Emi was recently appointed as Goodwill Ambassador to the UNHCR. Her new book Sisters’ Entrance, a book of poetry, is challenging perceptions across the world.

Who is this #remarkablewoman ?

A Sudanese-American poet and peace activist, Mahmoud reads from her poetry and discusses her human rights work. A former refugee, Mahmoud was the 2015 World Poetry Slam Champion and is now a United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees Goodwill Ambassador. She is also the founder of the peace movement One Girl Walk. Part of the Harward Center’s Theory into Practice series, this event is presented in partnership with the University of Maine School of Law’s Justice for Women series.
