"Cries for Intersectionality are at the center of organizing efforts for a host of social movements, the intersection of various liberation movements moving in solidarity against common oppressors. ... The movements for Black liberation and the movement for Palestinian liberation are front and center in this organizing effort. There is long history of these two movements allying together going all the way back to the civil rights era when SNCC publicly identified with the Palestinian liberation movement and subsequently lost almost all financial support from the Jewish community. ..."

That was from an article written by Rod Such and originally published in the Electronic Intifada.

Our feature presentation today is a talk given by Palestinian comedian and author Amer Zahr in the Palestine Center in Washington , DC. Amer Zahr has made quite a name for himself as a comedian who performs, literally, all over the planet. He is well known on US campuses, but also has performed in major theaters throughout the country including the Kennedy Center. In this presentation he also reads from his book “Being Palestinian Makes Me Smile.”
