Afikra - Celebrating Arab Culture

This past month I had the beautiful honor of being invited to speak at Afikra, a community that celebrates Arab culture. Every presentor picks one question to answer related to Arabs, mine was of course related to famous poet, painter and author Kahlil Gibran. My question specifically was: What inspired Kahlil Gibran to write the Prophet? 

Watch my video as I share his story, the journey from Lebanon to US and how he created one of the best selling books worldwide. Enjoy!
