For the third episode in our Banned Together series, we sit down to process what it feels like to be a Muslim in America right now, or to hold a passport from one of the countries targeted by the President's immigration and travel ban. Ahmed talks with Moustafa Bayoumi, an author and associate professor of English at Brooklyn College, and Elamin Abdelmahmoud, News Curation Editor at BuzzFeed.
They talk about the history of the Asian Exclusion Act, the Quebec mosque shooting, and family abroad.
Plus: Moustafa does a dramatic reading of the powerful/woke/badass/brilliant NY Taxi Worker Alliance statement on the #MuslimBan.
