Deepa Iyer, We Too Sing America: South Asian, Muslim, and Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future, The New Press, 2017, 272 pages, $25.95.

Racial anxiety, bigotry, and anti-immigrant sentiment has escalated in post 9/11 America but that history is often forgotten or ignored. Kristian Petersen talks with Deepa Iyer, Senior Fellow at the Center for Social Inclusion, about her new book We Too Sing America: South Asian, Arab, Muslim and Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future.

NOTE: Since I spoke with Deepa Iyer, President Obama ended NSEERS on December 22, 2016.
