By Bri Griffith, junior Creative Writing major


Dr. Moustafa Bayoumi, author of “How Does It Feel to Be a Problem?: Being Young and Arab in America” spoke at Carlow University’s Academic Convocation on Tuesday, September 20, 2016.

Dr. Bayoumi participated in a Q&A with Carlow students directly following Convocation. He spoke about diversity and division in America, trust, and the exploitation of fear.

Dr. Bayoumi was watching Sunday night’s second presidential debate. His now famous tweet, concerning Donald Trump telling Muslim Americans to “report suspicious activity,” was the most popular tweet of debate night. The tweet was retweeted almost 90,000 times, and it’s been liked by over 173,000 Twitter users.
