    FREE online program

    Hear from Laila Lalami, Pulitzer Prize finalist and author of The Other Americans, as she discusses her first work of nonfiction, Conditional Citizens: On Belonging in America. Using her own journey from Moroccan immigrant to United States citizen as a starting point, Lalami explores how marginalized groups—including immigrants, women, and people of color—are often blocked from many of the rights, liberties, and protections associated with American citizenship. Moderated by writer Kiese Laymon (Heavy: An American Memoir), this evening offers illuminating and deeply personal insights about the experiences of those whom America embraces with one arm and pushes away with the other.
