Syrian-American Amal Kassir reads 'My Grandmother's Farm'

3:12

Amal Kassir lived in Syria for many years. She says her time there helped her understand the people's suffering while the freedoms she has in America allowed her to become an activist on their behalf. At 18, she performs slam poetry at festivals and political rallies around the U.S., like her recent performance of "My Grandmother's Farm" at the University of Colorado Denver.
