Khizr Khan - An American Family: A Memoir of Hope and Sacrifice in conversation with Wajahat Ali—at Sixth & I

Upcoming Event
Sunday, October 29, 2017 - 5:00pm to 6:00pm

Khan came to national prominence with his passionate speech at the Democratic Convention, where he chastised Trump for his anti-immigration stand. As the Gold Star father of an American Muslim Army Captain killed while preventing a suicide attack in Iraq, Khan is a living rebuke to xenophobia in mainstream politics, and his memoir is an inspiring look at the American dream. Expressing his “continued faith and belief in the innate goodness of America, even in these challenging times,” Khan recalls growing up on a poultry farm in rural Pakistan. He and his wife came to the U.S. in 1980 and became citizens in 1986, the same year Khan graduated from Harvard Law School. The couple raised three sons, one of whom joined the ROTC in college, was posthumously awarded the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart, and laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery.

Khan will be in conversation with Wajahat Ali, who is a journalist, writer, lawyer, award-winning playwright, TV host, and consultant for the U.S. State Department.
