Program Description:

This PBS Books presentation of “Little Amal” shares the power of artist Amir Nizar Zuabi extraordinary message of “One Little Girl. One Big Hope.” as his embodiment of a 10-year-old girl is brought to life in the form of a 12-foot puppet who journeys, as many young refugees have, over many miles and many countries.

Little Amal has become a global symbol of human rights and has received invitations from towns and cities all over the world, from people who are eager to help her spread her urgent message: “Don’t forget about us”.

As “Little Amal Walks Across America”, our PBS partner station Detroit Public Television captures the experience in the series One Detroit. Amir reflects on his humbling experience in the creation along with the impact the project has had within himself, the people who have come to share in the experience and Little Amal herself.
