Blair Imani is one of the rising voices in American activism. We talk about how she evolved into her role and why she converted into the religion of Islam. One of the best parts of the show is hearing from people with different perspectives and paradigms. It’s where I learn and grow. It is also easy for me to see where our love and values overlap. This is a wonderful show with a dynamic young woman.
