Syrian refugees Zubair Rushk and Amira Elamri will share their stories of life in Syria and a refugee’s long road to building a life in the United States as part of UNC Charlotte’s Witness in Residence initiative. Dr. Charles Kurzman, co-director of the Carolina Center for the Study of Middle East and Muslim Civilizations at UNC Chapel Hill, will moderate the conversation. Complimentary parking at 422 E. 9th Street with special event permit; information about obtaining a permit will be emailed to those who register a few days before the event. Thanks to generous donors from the community, the Anabel Aliaga-Buchenau Witness in Residence Initiative provides Study Abroad Scholarships for student experiences related to human rights and social justice. It also brings to the campus and the community individuals who have personally witnessed an important world event from within that event. For more information and to register: clas.uncc.edu/witness.
