Hamsa Essay Contest

Hamsa (Hands Across the Middle East Alliance) is sponsoring an essay contest about civil rights in the Middle-East, under the theme “Dream Deferred.” (The title comes from a poem by Langston Hughes.) The first prize is $2,000, and the panel of judges includes a whole bunch of people we at Moorishgirl approve of, including Tel Quel editor Ahmed Reda Benchemsi. The deadline is coming up, so hurry up and submit your essay.
