Over the past 15 years, we have witnessed a rise in xenophobia, racial anxiety and Islamophobia in the United States. On the frontlines of this backlash are Muslim, Arab, Sikh and South Asian communities. Join us for a book talk with Deepa Iyer, author of the award-winning We Too Sing America: South Asian, Muslim, Arab and Sikh Communities Shape Our Multiracial Future, to discuss the implications of the domestic War on Terror and the power of storytelling as a means of resistance and solidarity. Book signing to follow.
