Gold Star Father Khizr Khan Speaks About His Son

February 16, 2017

It’s not too often a major political convention brings a person from obscurity and places them square in the center of the political universe. But that's exactly what happened to Khizr Khan and his wife, Ghazala, on July 28th - when they stepped onto the stage on the final night of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia. He delivered a show-stopping speech aimed at Donald Trump, famously offering to lend the then-candidate his copy of the U.S. Constitution. More than six months later, Khizr Khan is still fighting on. Last night, he spoke at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government. Jim Braude (@JimBraude) joined him after the speech.
