After a miraculous recovery, Malala became a global symbol of peaceful protest and at age 16 the youngest nominee ever for the Nobel Peace Prize.

Copies of the book will be available in the weeks prior to the meeting. Book discussion will be facilitaed by Mongi Dhaouadi, the executive director of Council of American- Islamic Relations CT (CAIR CT).

Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle

Created Equal: America's Civil Rights Struggle is an initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities that uses the power of documentary films to encourage community discussion of America's civil rights history. NEH has partnered with the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History to develop programmatic and support materials for the sites. New London Maritime Society's program at Public Library of New London is one of 473 institutions across the country awarded a set of  films chronicling the history of the Civil Rights Movement.

Discussion leader: Lonnie Braxton 

Duration: 77 min
