Our own Maryann Mohamoud will be guiding a discussion and presenting her film, The Secret Pain, at the Mwangi Cultural Centre at Smith College next Wednesday, March 10th, at 4:30PM. All are welcome. Maryann is herself an FGM survivor, and a courageous advocate for African immigrants in Western Massachusetts. Maryann works with immigrant families who have recently arrived (and continue to arrive), as well as with the medical and human services community (where there are often substantial culture and knowledge gaps). To sample her work and perspectives while at The Springfield Institute, click here.
