THE POWER OF WORDS (FOR EQUALITY AND JUSTICE) | 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.
