Deepa Iyer is a South Asian American activist, writer, and lawyer. Please join us for a conversation about her recent book We Too Sing America which explores how emerging communities of color and immigrants can transform America's changing racial landscape. Through storytelling and policy analysis around racial flashpoint, Iyer traces the impact of post 9/11 national insecurities, anti-immigrant sentiment and racial anxiety on South Asian, Muslim, Arab and Sikh communities.

Reception to start at 6:15 pm ahead of the lecture. Event is free and open to the public.
