My Name is Rachel Corrie

My Name is Rachel Corrie

Twenty-three year-old Evergreen State College graduate (and Olympia, Washington native) Rachel Corrie went to the Gaza Strip to aid Palestinians whose homes were being destroyed in the conflict with Israel. In March of 2003, she was killed by an Israeli bulldozer. Hosted by the Seattle Repertory Theater, this special Global Classroom event included a screening of the play, My Name is Rachel Corrie, which is told through Corrie’s own words, and was followed by a reception and panel discussion with voices from Rachel’s family and the Israeli and Palestinian communities.
