Reviews

Winner of the Before Columbus Foundation's American Book Award

"Powerful...Iyer catalogues the toll that various forms of discrimination have taken and highlights the inspiring ways activists are fighting back. [She] is an ideal chronicler of this experience."
-- The Washington Post

"A critical history of the specific race and faith discrimination South Asian and Arab communities struggled through and are still reconciling in our post--9/11 era...Thank you, Deepa Iyer for your courage--and for this book."
-- Hyphen Magazine

"At a time when Black and Brown communities are under attack, Deepa Iyer reminds us in this timely and moving book that building meaningful and lasting allegiances, shaped by young people, is the urgent task ahead of us."
--Vincent Warren, president of the Center for Constitutional Rights

"Fills an unfortunate gap in knowledge of the effects of post-9/11 bigotry and violence on South Asian, Arab, and Muslim communities. It is personal, political, and powerful."
--Hari Kondabolu, comedian and writer
