O'Hara's: Resilience on Tap
Wednesday, May 29 at 6 p.m. ET
In the aftermath of 9/11, individuals came together in public spaces to grieve, find solace, and memorialize the attacks. These spaces fostered a sense of community that, in some cases, endure two decades later. O’Hara’s Restaurant and Pub is one of these sites. After suffering significant structural damage on 9/11, the bar re-opened seven months after the attacks, quickly becoming a space of mourning, healing, and a living tribute to first responders. To discuss the role of O’Hara’s after 9/11, the importance of community spaces, and how social ties are critical aspects of resilience, Museum Director, Clifford Chanin, is joined by Mike Keane, co-owner of O’Hara’s, retired firefighter Tim Brown, and Dr. David AbramsonDirector of the Center for Public Health Disaster Science at NYU’s School of Global Public Health.

Almost three years after the withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan, the current state of al-Qaeda looms large. According to a recent United Nations report, key al-Qaeda allies have since consolidated power in Afghanistan, providing the group with favorable conditions to evolve. Defense policy researcher and counterterrorism expert, Sara Harmouch, argues “dispelling myths of its decline, al-Qaeda remains a resilient and evolving force, continually refining its methods.” Together in conversation with Museum Director Clifford Chanin, Harmouch discusses the relationship between al-Qaeda and the Taliban, the current standing of al-Qaeda and its affiliates in the region, and what this all means for the U.S. and the complex threat landscape it currently faces.
Please note that you must register in order to attend these events in person, and seating is limited.

For those unable to attend, the events will be broadcast live, with captioning, at

The 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s programs are made possible, in part, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of the Office of the Governor and the New York State Legislature.
