I am so excited to share this episode with you. I had the privilege of speaking with three Muslim filmmakers/artists (Asad Ali Jafri, Iram Parveen Bilal, Usama Alshaibi) and a social organizer (Vivian Hua) who has put together a national film screening series starting in May called the Seventh Art Stand. We talked about art, story, Islamophobia, being Muslim in America, and so much more. These people are doing the hard work of telling new stories in order to reshape how average Americans view Arabs and Muslims, and they got very real with me, very fast. You don't want to miss this episode. Take some time and enjoy!
