Chicago-based Silk Road Rising receives SAALT award this Friday

With all the sad news out of Boston this week, I wanted to share the happy news that my very own college classmate Malik Gillani (St. John's College Annapolis, Maryland 1992), his life partner Jamil Khoury and their Chicago-based non-profit theatre organization Silk Road Rising will be awarded with the 2013 Changemakers Award by the organization South Asian Americans Leading Together for Silk Road Rising's theatrical work in countering negative representations of Asian American, Middle Eastern American, and Muslim American peoples in the U.S. Very proud of you Malik!
