For the third episode in our Ramadan series, we focus on a
community that isn’t often centered during Ramadan — black Muslims.
First up, Ahmed talks with Sarah Hagi, who writes for Vice, about
the glory of #BlackMuslimRamadan and #BlackoutEid. Then, a
longer conversation with Ikhlas Saleem, who co-hosts the
Identity Politics podcast, about moving away from, and
back to, the black Muslim community she grew up in. Plus — why she
joined the international students association in college despite
being 100% American. Finally, Ikhlas calls her mom to ask her a few
questions about her first Ramadan.
