Fighting for Native American rights, poetic justice and Mali’s women
Laila Moghrabi is a journalist, photographer, filmmaker and editor in Libya. In 2013, Laila helped establish a group called Tanweer which launched a used books festival. Members of the group quickly began receiving threats from Islamic extremists and Laila decided to take a break from writing. However, in 2016, she edited a collection of essays and poetry which included work from prominent Libyan literary critics. The collection, entitled Sun on Closed Windows, was condemned by the Libyan authorities as being immoral while a passage of the book with sexual content was photographed and shared by Islamic extremists.
