On Wednesday, May 16, from 6-8 pm (ET) we hosted a conversation with Wajahat Ali who returned to Auburn for an in-depth conversation on just how complex it is to engage with “the other.”
The focus of the talk was Ali’s recent reporting for The Atlantic, on his travels in the West Bank. The conversation was moderated by Auburn Seminary Associate Dean, Logan Nakyanzi Pollard and was followed by a Q&A with the audience.
