Stop the Hate, One Student at a Time

Featured Audio

"I am Palestinian but I am not the enemy." That is the first line of an essay written by Shaker Heights High School senior Lea Kayali. Her description of being Arab in a post-911 world, and her actions to break down barriers -- she joined an Israeli Culture Club, for example -- earned her the grand prize in the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage's Stop the Hate essay contest. Lea joins host Mike McIntyre, along with other inspiring essayists, Wednesday morning at 9:00 on The Sound of Ideas.  Originally aired May 6, 2015.

Read the winning essays on the Maltz Museum website.
