Abdi Aynte, the featured guest at January’s Brown Bag Lunch With A Journalist, will soon leave Minnesota to work for BBC. Abdi is a native of Somalia, grew up in Egypt and moved to the United States in 2000. In Minnesota, he has been writing for the Minnesota Monitor as well as editing and writing for the bilingual blog Hiiraan Online. Abdi speaks and writes in English, Arabic & Somali. Abdi has written extensively on immigration, race, Somali and Muslim communities, and education.
Twin Cities Media Alliance’s monthly Brown Bag Lunches are your chance for casual conversation with one of the Twin Cities’ most insightful journalists – about journalism, politics, or whatever is on your mind.
We will gather at the East Lake Library, 2727 East Lake Street, Minneapolis at noon on January 15. Bring your own lunch.
