Identity Politics Podcast



Identity Politics is a podcast focused on race, gender and Muslims in America. This podcast explores how Muslims are balancing and prioritizing their multiple identities and how these intersections influence how they see themselves, interact with each other and their civic engagement in America.
Each month, co-hosts Ikhlas Saleem and Makkah Ali invite a wide variety of guests—professors, writers, activists, artists, students and more—to share their work, stories and perspectives about multiple areas of Muslim life in America.
