Talk with activist Saffiyah Khan

You have heard about this: At a protest outside Birmingham Library on 8 April 2017, a photo was taken of Saffiyah Khan protecting a woman. Her cool and calm face is inches away from an English Defence League activist – a far-right, islamophobic organisation in England. The photo went viral and Khan became the face of the opposition. Hear her speak about her own experience of becoming – or having others make you – an activist overnight.
