Filmmaker and civil rights activist Valarie Kaur has been working to counter faith-based prejudice since the attacks of 9/11. As a third-generation Sikh-American, she knows well that as inappropriate as indiscriminate Islamophobia always is, it also doesn’t prevent society’s fear and hatred of Muslim-Americans. As the founding director of Groundswell at Auburn Theological Seminary, she wrote an insightful piece for The Washington Post, For Sikhs and Muslims, fear after a terror attack on the very real fears some of our fellow Americans are experiencing since the revelation that the Tsarnaev brothers identified as Muslim. Valarie is on State of Belief this week with a broad view of what the events in Boston are likely to mean for all of us. CLICK HERE FOR EXTENDED INTERVIEW VIDEO AND TRANSCRIPT
