An organizer and co-chair of the 2017 Women’s March, Linda Sarsour is a political activist and former executive director of the Arab American Association of New York. Prior to the tragic events in Charlottesville, VA, she was a guest on Stretch Armstrong and Bobbito‘s What’s Good podcast.
“Linda Sarsour’s voice needs to be heard, not just in times when civic discourse devolves into violence, but at any and all times that sexism, racism, and ignorance exist,” the duo say about the episode. “Which, unfortunately, is constant. We hope that you enjoy our interview with her, which was pre-recorded two months ago so it does not include or reflect commentary on recent events. Word.”
During their sit-down together, Stretch and Bob delve into Sarsour’s background, her upbringing in Brooklyn, the parallel’s between Middle Eastern and Latino cultures, the “radical act” of speaking to your neighbors and much more. Listen to their 30-minute interview below.
