"As though we were twenty impossibilities
In Lydda, Ramla, and Galilee
Here we shall stay
Like a brick wall upon your breast
And in your throat
Like a splinter of glass, like spiky cactus
And in your eyes
A chaos of fire..."
Come learn about the history of Palestinian life before and
after colonization and celebrate the revolutionary spirit of
Arab people from Palestine to Egypt and Tunisia.
We'll share the poetry of Tawfiq Zayyad.
Refreshments will be served.
