In Conversation: Amir Sulaiman

Acclaimed poet, activist, recording artist, and filmmaker Amir Sulaiman will join Youssef Carter (UNC Religious Studies) for a screening of his new short film Laying Flowers Setting Fires. Sulaiman will also discuss his work, which viscerally and spiritually confronts themes of race, identity, suffering, healing, and love. Sulaiman’s reading caps a week of virtual engagements with the Duke and Durham community, including local K-12 students, as part of Duke Performances’ ongoing ‘Building Bridges: Muslims in America’ initiative. Introduction by Brian Valentyn (Duke Performances).
