Description

 

Khizr Khan, the Pakistani American father of United States Army Captain Humayan Khan who was killed in 2004 during the Iraq War. Along with his wife Ghazala, Khizr received international attention following a speech at the 2016 Democratic National Convention in which he criticized then-Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

About The Green Room:
How does one community get smarter…
Employ that knowledge to uplift the lives of its residents…
Join with other cities and towns across the country…
And collectively change the world?

If you’re interested in finding answers to these questions, join us this fall for The Green Room, a University of Iowa Honors Program course and community-wide educational experiment open to all residents of Iowa City.

Taught by David Lynn Gould, The Green Room will meet at 7 p.m. on select Monday nights in August through October at The Englert Theatre. Find your community, share your thoughts, and join us for this one-of-a-kind, multi-dimensional learning experience. This event series is FREE and open to the public.
