Screening & Talkback: “Watched: Coming of Age Under Surveillance”

Join us for a screening, and conversation with former Brooklyn College student Rabia Ahsin, Distinguished Professor of Political Science at Brooklyn College Jeanne Theoharis, journalist Aviva Stahl, and BHS Oral Historian and Muslims in Brooklyn Project Director Zaheer Ali.
