Aman Ali to Speak at STLCC-Meramec

November 10, 2016

Aman Ali  

Award-winning storyteller Aman Ali, considered one of the most engaging social media personalities in the Muslim community today, will appear  Tuesday, Nov. 29, at St. Louis Community College-Meramec.

The event, which is free and open to the public, begins at 6 p.m. in the theater on campus, 11333 Big Bend Road.

Ali has made appearances on dozens of media outlets, including the New York Times, CNN, NBC News, HBO, BBC and NPR, to talk about the shenanigans of “being an awkward brown kid from Ohio.” The passionate and animated tales that he regularly posts to Facebook continue to go viral by the thousands daily.

He is the co-director of the documentary "Two Gods," about a group of Muslim morticians trying to stop gang violence in Newark, N.J. It was featured at the 2016 Tribeca Film Festival and continues to garner buzz in the industry.

He recently was named by YouTube and Google as a "Content Creator to Watch" for his channel "Homegrown Homies," in which he tells human stories about the Muslim community.

Ali first shot to fame for co-creating the social media phenomenon “30 Mosques in 30 Days,” a 25,000-mile trip he took to all 50 states in the United States, with the mission of telling groundbreaking and profound stories about Muslims in America.

Ali’s appearance is sponsored by the Meramec Student Activities Council and Muslim Students Association.

For more information, call 314-984-7641. Individuals with accommodations needs should call that same number at least two working days prior to the event.
