Today I have the opportunity to speak with an individual that I have been listening to and learning from for a while now, Mifrah Abid. Mifrah is an activist, advocate of racial equity, and the creator, producer and host of Across Her Table Podcast.
In this episode, Mifrah challenges my beliefs on home and identity. We discuss our thoughts on nationalism and Mirfah explains the concept of jingoism and how it relates to our times now. This is such an important conversation for us to be having; I cannot wait for you to listen to and learn from the stories the Mifrah shares.
