92Y Confronts Hate

An Urgent Examination of the Rise of Hatred in America

Malala and Ziauddin Yousafzai with Christiane Amanpour

Oct 10, 2013

Malala Yousafzai, international advocate for education, has a rare kind of courage. As an 11-year-old girl growing up in the Swat Valley in Pakistan she began blogging about her determination to go to school and the right of other children to do so, despite the Taliban’s violent opposition to girls’ education. At 15 she was shot in the face at point-blank range because she had the temerity to stand up to the Taliban. That hasn’t stopped her. She is now the author of a memoir, I Am Malala, where she tells her remarkable story, the story of millions of children around the world who are denied an education and her plans for the future, including her work with the Malala Fund. How many of us could do what she’s done? Find out what this 16-year-old girl and her father, Ziauddin, a former school principal and international educational advocate, can teach us all as they are interviewed by Christiane Amanpour, the Emmy and Peabody Award-winning CNN correspondent.

Ambassador Samantha Power delivers opening introductory remarks.
