The Miller Center to host Mr. Khizr Kahn for his first public appearance in Charlottesville in Old Cabell Hall on UVA Central Grounds

Khizr Khan, a Charlottesville resident, became famous for his remarks at the Democratic National Convention this year when he stood with his wife Ghazala and told the story of their son Humayun, a UVA graduate and U.S. Army captain who was killed in the line of duty in Iraq in 2004. The Khans moved to Charlottesville after the death of their son and have been very involved with the ROTC program at UVA. Mr. Khan will discuss his experiences and share his perspective with the host of the Miller Center’s American Forum television program, Pulitzer Prize–winning author Douglas Blackmon. He will take questions from the audience following the interview.

This event is free and open to the public. Tickets for entry will be distributed at Old Cabell Hall on the day of the event beginning at 4:30 PM on a first-come, first-serve basis. Doors will open at 5:30 PM. Mr. Khan will be available to the media immediately following the event.
