My Conversation Examining the Tragedy of Nigeria's Stolen Girls

Tonight on PBS I have a conversation with Omoyele Sowore, founder and publisher of, and Amber Khan, senior communications director of Women for Women International, which advocates on behalf of women and girls around the globe.

In the following clip, Sowore, who has just returned from Nigeria, stresses that Boko Haram is an Islamist militant group, not an Islamic organization.

For more of our conversation, be sure to tune in to Tavis Smiley tonight on PBS. Check out our website for your local TV listings:
