Dr. Fathi Osman Time: 48 minutes 50 seconds

An intimate discussion with Dr. Fathi Osman about his life, from his early childhood in Egypt that shaped his belief in human rights, justice, and democracy to his migration to the United States and the pursuit of freedom. Dr. Osman looks back at how his fight against dictatorship in Egypt led to the most difficult time in his life but also shaped his belief in God. ”I never thought that fear was so destructive to all the intellectual and human abilities and it might reduce the human to an animal or less.“ He shares his thoughts on how the struggle against colonialism and dictatorship split between those who chose the peaceful route and those who turned to violence and aggression.
