Algerian Writer and Human-Rights Advocate Sets Up in Pittsburgh


Last month, we welcomed novelist, blogger, and human rights defender Anouar Rahmani to Sampsonia Way as a new writer-in-residence. Through his writings, he advocates for individual freedoms, environmental rights, and the rights of religious minorities and the LGBTQ+ community.

Recently, he sat down with WESA's Bill O'Driscoll to discuss his writing, culture shock, and the history of harassment he has endured. Listen to the interview and read the accompanying article.
Anouar is an Artist Protection Fund Fellow in residence at Carnegie Mellon University’s Department of Modern Languages and City of Asylum.
