GuerrillaReads No. 83: Shukry Cattan

Welcome to Los Angeles, Crossroads of the World. Hometown world traveler Shukry Cattan reads about growing up Palestinian in the US. It’s about exploring his Arab roots and finding his place in the world.

This video comes to us as part of a partnership between GuerrillaReads and Tiyya Foundation, a local nonprofit that provides basic necessities for refugees and displaced American families. Through their creative writing program, refugees and immigrants have an opportunity to tell their own stories, in their own words. This is one of those stories.

Look for more videos from Tiyya Foundation here on GR.
