Am I a good Immigrant?

36 minutes

In this episode, Saadia talks to Chimene Suleyman. Chimene is the editor of The Good Immigrant USA, and a contributing writer to the original best-selling award-winning British anthology The Good Immigrant (Unbound, 2016). Chimene’s work has also appeared in the Guardian, Independent, IBTimes, The Quietus,  News night, BBC Radio 4’s Today Program, NPR, and Sky news. Chimene and Saadia talk about the intersectionality between gender and race. Chimene explains how she felt embarrassed about her parents' culture, when she was growing up in London and how she has come to embrace her identity as a Muslim woman of color. They laugh about Saadia's obsession with Chimene's twitter feed, which in Saadia's opinion is very informative and bold! Become a supporter of this podcast:
