“Building Ramps not Bombs”

Please join us this Wednesday, April 9th at 5:30pm in the Library Auditorium to hear Benafsha Tasmim speak about Skateistan, an innovative NGO that uses skateboarding as a tool to empower the youth of Afghanistan. A short, award-winning documentary about Skateistan will be screened, and then Tasmim (pictured) will discuss her experiences with the organization. Her presentation will include a discussion and Q&A led by TCNJ professor, Marla Jaksch.

This event is being held in conjunction with the exhibition, Art Amongst War: Visual Culture in Afghanistan, 1979-2014, currently on view in the TCNJ Art Gallery, and is generously supported by a grant from NJCH. For more information on the exhibition, please visit
