"Poets, Comedians and Dancers: Tears and Laughter for Palestine."
Join us for an evening devoted to the poets, musicians, and comedians of Palestine.

Jonathon Tucker, a local resistance poet, and Split This Rock staffer, will unleash poems about the dangerous relationship between the United States and Israel. Magical oud and kanoun player, Huda Asfour, will enchant us. Palestinian-American comedian Said Durrah will lighten the mood with with a few jokes, before traditional Debke dancers present a dance lesson to the entire audience.
