KDSL will interview Amina Brown of NFTE or Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship on 16 April 2013 at 12noon EST.
As a former District of Columbia Public School English and Journalism teacher at both the junior high and high school level, Ms. Amina Brown is familiar with the challenges that at-risk, neglected and abandon youth confront daily. First hand encounters with children orphaned by AIDS, drug addiction, and stories of struggle through extreme poverty--often under a pervasive and unremitting threat of lethal violence serve as motivation for Ms. Brown’s commitment to education reform and innovative curriculum design. Ms. Brown is currently the Senior Director of Programs for the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship where she is charged with helping NFTE DC fulfill its potential as a force for change by building an ever-expanding and increasingly academic strategy leveraging private and public sectors committed to educational excellence and opportunity for all children.
Prior to her experience at NFTE, Ms. Brown was an Instructional Performance Coach at Anacostia Senior High School as part of DCPS’ School Turnaround and Restructuring Effort. Prior to this experience, Ms. Brown was a District Literacy Coach/Reading Intervention Program Manager for District of Columbia Public schools via the Office of Curriculum and Instruction.
Ms. Brown holds a Bachelor’s Degree from Syracuse University, and Master’s degree from the American University in Journalism and Public Affairs and is certified in International Baccalaureate World Literature; Advanced Placement Language and Composition and Adult Literacy. Ms. Brown is a native Washingtonian.
The Price of Honor is a documentary film about the murders of Amina and Sarah Said, teenage sisters from Lewisville, Texas, who were killed in a premeditated “honor killing” in 2008. The film shows the lives of the sisters and the path to their eventual murders by their own father, Yaser Said, who fled the crime scene and remains on the FBI’s Most Wanted List. Director, and Executive Producer and activist, Xoel Pamos, and author, activist, producer, Amy Logan speak with the Voice of Leadership about honor killings and this powerful film.
The film reveals new details and uncovers evidence about the case that has never before been made public, including a previous murder committed by Yaser, and the ultimate sacrifice of Amina Said, who had a secret plan to protect the love of her life. Her words, through emails, letters and diary entries, become the voice of the film and change much of what has heretofore been assumed about this case. Despite the tragedy, viewers will learn of an incredible love story that still has life after death.
Friends, family members, experts and activists against “honor violence” emotionally guide viewers through the girls’ lives and deaths, in the process launching a movement to bring Yaser Said to justice. The Price of Honor discredits the prevailing theory that Yaser fled to his native Egypt after shooting his daughters, instead proposing that he is in hiding in the U.S.
The film’s additional mission is to bring awareness to this international issue of honor violence, expose law enforcement’s mismanagement of the Said case, and raise the bar for how honor violence is handled by police in the U.S. henceforth.
