Virtual Revolutions

September 27, 2016, 7:00 PM

Free

From Facebook pages to WhatsApp forwards, the Internet and social media helped pave the way to the Arab Spring ongoing revolutions. Khalid Albaih, a political cartoonist from Sudan and the 2016 Oak Fellow, will discuss his cartoons that champion freedom of expression and democracy in the Arab world. During the Arab Spring uprising in 2011, Albaih’s images were turned into stencils and reproduced on city walls in Cairo and Sana’a.
