St. Norbert College will host Aziz Abu Sarah, a National Geographic explorer, for a lecture on Thursday, March 2, at 7:30 p.m. in the Walter Theatre of the Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the college campus. The lecture is part of the Spring 2017 Norman & Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding of the Norman Miller Center for Peace, Justice & Public Understanding. It is free and open to the public.

Sarah will lecture on "Growing up Palestinian in Israel: One Man's Journey From Revenge to Reconciliation." He is a National Geographic explorer and cultural educator, as well as a TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) fellow. Sarah, a Palestinian from Jerusalem, is a co-founder of MEJDI Tours, a social enterprise focused on introducing multi-narrative cultural education and responsible business practices to the travel industry. He is also a co-founder of Project Amal ou Salam, a grassroots relief organization for Syrian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and Turkey.

The Norman and Louis Miller Lecture in Public Understanding was established in 1993 by the Norman Miller Family Foundation to honor Norman's brother, Louis Miller, who died in 1989. When Norman died in 2008, his name was added to the lecture series, which promotes unity, communication and tolerance among different cultures, religions, ethnicities and traditions.
