Palestinian feminist educators discuss the current crisis and its historical context.
First, from Jerusalem, we speak with Nadera Shalhoub Kevorkian, professor of criminology at the Hebrew University, and a member of the Jerusalemite Women’s Coalition. The coalition issued a call for protection to the international community last week.
Then, Rabab Abdulhadi, professor of Ethnic Studies and Race and Resistance Studies at San Francisco State University talks about the commemoration of the Edward Said Palestine Cultural Mural, the only one of its kind on a U.S. college campus. The mural was held up for several years due to fierce opposition from Zionist organizations and campus administrators, but was unveiled in November 2007.
The annual commemoration celebration on Wednesday night will feature a performance of the one-woman show, “Palestine,” by Najla Said, daughter of Edward Said.
