If you feel uninspired by the current slate of possible Presidential nominees, take some time before Super Tuesday and be inspired by a young lady living into her namesake. Tune in tonight and watch, He Named Me Malala.
Maybe it is unfair to compare the short life of Malala to the well-worn lives of even the youngest potential nominee for President. Then again maybe we should aspire to advocate for the disadvantaged rather than the listen to those pitching for corporate special interests.
The good folks at www.witpr.com sent over a preview DVD for review. Thanks Ryan.
You may recall the story when the news broke of the shooting of Malala. What about her life before and since? The documentary would be a good refresher and provide opportunity to talk with your children about how important it is to advocate for others. Here is what you need to know to watch this evening.
National Geographic Channel, in continuation of its partnership with Fox Searchlight Pictures, presents the exclusive global broadcast television premiere of Academy Award winner Davis Guggenhiem’s feature documentary He Named Me Malala, 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. You may watch this evening, February 29, at 8 PM ET/PT, 7 PM CT, on National Geographic Channel.
