Mohamedou Ould Slahi x Steve Wood
This Thursday we’re hosting a conversation between former Guantánamo Bay detainee and NITE writer in residence Mohamedou Ould Salahi and his former guard, Steve Wood.
After Mohamedou was released, the pair were reunited Mauritania, Mohamedou’s homeland – rekindling an unlikely friendship that deeply changed their lives.
“Steve and I met in Guantanamo Bay. He was my prison guard and he hold almost unlimited power over me. I’d just come out of the torture program when I met him and we started to bond over coffee, movies and books behind my interrogators back. Today, he and I share a passion to spread peace and love in the world and build bridges.” – Mohamedou Ould Slahi
