Home / In the Spotlight / He Named Me Malala Free Webinar October 5, 6pm E.D.T


Join Facing History and Ourselves, in partnership with Journeys in Film, Participant Productions and the Malala Fund for a special webinar for educators on the Fox Searchlight documentary He Named Me Malala.

He Named Me Malala is an intimate portrait of Nobel Peace Prize Laureate Malala Yousafzai, who was targeted by the Taliban and severely wounded by a gunshot when returning home on her school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley. The then 15-year-old was singled out, along with her father, for advocating for girls’ education, and the attack on her sparked an outcry from supporters around the world. She miraculously survived and is now a leading campaigner for girls’ education globally as co-founder of the Malala Fund. The film is a powerful story of Choosing to Participate in our changing world.

Using excerpts from the film and selections from the Journeys in Film study guide, this webinar, facilitated by Facing History and Ourselves staff, will prepare educators to bring their students to the film at one of the free educational screenings organized by the Malala Fund.
