GUEST: Deepa Iyer, former Executive Director of South Asian Americans Leading Together (SAALT), who teaches in the Asian American Studies program at the University of Maryland. Her new book is entitled “We Too Sing America: South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh Immigrants Share Our Multiracial Future.

Discussion of race in the United States usually groups people into several broad categories: white, black, Latino, Indigenous, and Asian – by which most people mean East Asian.

But what about South Asians like my guest Deepa Iyer, and me? What about Arab, Muslim, and Sikh communities? After the September 11th attacks in particular, these communities have worked to insert themselves into the discourse of racial justice in the United States.
