“Palestinian Hoop Dreams” is a thoughtful story by Ahmed Hameid, a Palestinian student at United World College. Ahmed describes his time playing basketball that culminated in an important youth championship for the community. With all the excitement around the event, Ahmed and his teammates were devastated to know that the championship had been canceled due to an attack in the Gaza strip earlier that day.
The Audio Revolution! production team and students at the United World College in Las Vegas, NM teamed up to create this comprehensive show about the conflict occurring right now in the Gaza strip. Hosts Gabriel Rima of Monte Del Sol Charter School and Savannah Chapman, a sophomore at Capital High School, guide listeners through personal narratives, interviews and an in-depth look at a performance.
