Hello Faz: The Celebrity-filled Life of an Ypsilanti Pizza Guy   

Online Class:  A ZOOM invitation link will be sent one day before class begins.

In the fall of 1966, 14-year-old Faz Husain took a break from his part-time job at a pizza shop on Cross Street in Ypsilanti and stepped outside. Up the street he noticed a crowd of people gathering in front of Eastern Michigan University's Pease Auditorium. He decided to wander across to see what was happening. This decision set the course of his remaining life, and ended up making him one of the Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti area's most beloved citizens. In this presentation we will take a look at the well-lived life of an immigrant from Patna, India, whose friendship with figures such as Muhammad Ali and Bill Clinton led to meeting an array of other figures from the worlds of politics, sports, and entertainment.  

John A. Stewart is a retired software developer with degrees in biology from the University of Michigan. He is proud to have been one of the many friends of Faz.
