In recognition of International Education Week, Michigan Tech is screening the critically acclaimed documentary, He Named me Malala, at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11 in Fisher 135. A reflection discussion will follow the film. Admission is free.
The film is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate , who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund.
The event is sponsored by Michigan Tech Provost Office, International Programs and Services and Michigan Tech Film Board.
