Townsquare Sunday: Professor Brian Glyn Williams
UMass Dartmouth Professor Brian Glyn Williams joins Jim Phillips on this weekend's edition of Townsquare Sunday.
Williams is an expert on Afghanistan and the Islamic world. He served as a "cultural adviser" for the movie "12 Strong," a film based on the true story of U.S. Special Forces deployed to Afghanistan following the 9-11 attacks. Williams lived with the Afghan Warlord, General Dostum, portrayed in the film and wrote a book about that experience. Williams also wrote "Afghanistan Declassified," which explains the history and culture of that war-torn nation, and is required reading for soldiers being deployed to Afghanistan.
Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and WBSM.com. Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
