Yousef Bashir​, an Unlikely Peace Builder 

Yousef Bashir in conversation with journalist David Plazas
Introduced by Michal
Eskanezi Becker | Musical Program by The Pursuit of Harmony

A Palestinian-American activist recalls stories of his late father, discusses his new memoir, Words of My Father, and shares his hope for peace between Israelis and Palestinians with award winning journalist and Opiniion and Engagement Director for the USA Today Network Tennessee, David Plazas. In the face of devastating brutality that almost left him paralyzed from the waist down, and his consequent treatment in Israel, Yousef Bashir’s memoir is moving, candid, and transformative. It is also full of youthful exuberance, unlikely adventures, and raw discovery as he reminds us of the importance of looking beyond prejudice, anger, and fear.
