3RD CENTURY – FATIMA AL FIHRI

In the face of today’s difficult news, we travel to North Africa to fill your newsfeeds with a bit of beauty: Sayyida Fatima al Fihri, an institution builder who began the oldest still-functioning university in the world.

Her university is a reminder of the work we can accomplish when we unite our communities.
