We Too Sing America: South Asian, Arab, Muslim, And Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future

$ 17.95

We Too Sing America is a necessary primer to understanding the current political climate - a time of increasingly open hatred and bigotry, in which Donald Trump's calls for bans on Muslims, surveillance of mosques, and punitive immigration laws are frightening possibilities. In this timely book, nationally renowned racial justice activist Deepa Iyer shows us how racial anxiety, Islamophobia, and anti-immigrant sentiment have been building in the decade and a half since the 9/11 terrorist attacks. 

Iyer catalogs recent racial flashpoints, including the 2012 massacre t the Sikh gurdwara in Oak Creek, Wisconsin, and the virulent opposition to the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Tennessee, and to the Park51 Community Center in Lower Manhattan. We Too Sing America provides historical context, ideas for how to center race in dialogue and policy, practical steps to advance social justice in our communities, and inspiring narratives of struggle and resistance.
