Columbia Professor Presents Palestinian Perspective to Class, Course Censored

CHICAGO, Il – In the midst of chaos, we often find it easier to remain silent than to take a stand; to let history unfold around us rather than being present in the human struggle. Here at KAKE, we have decided to take a stand with the Palestinian people and use our platform to protest and inform. In the past 12 days, 208 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli airstrikes, 1380 people have been wounded and that number is increasing by the minute. Thus far, the Israeli death toll remains at 1. When future generations look back on this travesty, we here at KAKE want to be standing on the right side of history.

In response to the recent developments surrounding the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, we’re re-visiting an installment from our 300 series featuring Iymen Chehade. Professor Chehade experienced the repercussions of speaking out against popular opinion first hand when he lost his job for showing The Academy Award nominated film, 5 Broken Cameras,  a film that documents the Palestinian perspective to the class he teaches on the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict.

One student, under the impression that showing the film was biased on Chehade’s part, complained to administration & that section of the course was cancelled soon after. But, that didn’t stop Chehade from letting his voice be heard. Through our conversation, we discover how Chehade exercises his own form of activism by presenting a break from the mainstream perspective & attempting to give a voice to the voiceless.

In this interview, KAKE delves deep into the root of the issues for 300 seconds of real.

The 300 series hones in on genuine conversation for others to relate to while promoting the lives of flourishing artists, entrepreneurs, and creatives alike.
