Keeping the Dream Alive

  • 7 p.m. - "Comedic Justice" - Keynote speaker, Negin Farsad (MUC Ballroom)


Negin Farsad - Social Justice Comedian, Director of "The Muslims are Coming!"

Negin Farsad is at the forefront of social justice comedy—a field that she insists totally exists (or should). As one of few Iranian-American Muslim female comedian/filmmakers, this TED Fellow uses humor—full-scale ridiculousity—to bridge the racial, religious, social, and immigrant gap. The Wall Street Journal calls her work "smart, funny, and fascinating." More information about Negin
