See Something Say Something

Jun 8, 2017

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.
