Little Amal, Queen of the Monarchs and symbol of human rights in 360

A November event in Inglewood, California, celebrated resilience and new beginnings with a powerful dance, music and spoken-word performance. Director and choreographer Debbie Allen created a kaleidoscope of swirling monarch butterflies, echoing Amal’s migration journey. Little Amal is a 12-foot puppet of a 10-year-old Syrian refugee child that has become a global symbol of human rights, especially those of refugees.
