On March 9th, AWWP writers Marzia and Mahnaz spoke to students at Nassau Community College as part of NCC’s Women’s History Month program. They wowed the crowd with their writings and their remarks regarding the status of Afghan women as well as their hopes for the future.
As part of the program, student and professor volunteers read AWWP essays and poems. In a wonderful four-minute radio segment produced by Mahnaz herself, hear portions of Roya’s “Remembering Fifteen” and Basira’s “Tahera’s Story.” You can also hear Marzia reading from her own poem “Listen to Me.”
A special thank you to NCC’s Sara Hosey and Mary Lennon for bringing AWWP to Long Island!
