Listening Party: Tell Them, I Am
Virtually, join Nancy Prophet Fellow Tayana Fincher to discuss Tell Them, I Am, a podcast focusing on small defining moments and characteristics that make individual Muslims who they are. In conjunction with the upcoming exhibition, It Comes in Many Forms: Islamic Art from the Collection, this program shares perspectives to inspire conversation about identity, representation, and global Muslim communities. Misha Euceph, the podcast's creator and producer, will join us for the last session.
Over the course of three consecutive Thursdays, starting on the first day of Ramadan, we will begin on Zoom for a quick overview, hear episodes separately, and finally come together for a dialogue. After listening and gathering questions, which can also be done in advance and added here, we will video in for a casual discussion. Questions and comments can also be sent in the sidebar chat during the dialogue.
Please find the list of episodes we’ll discuss on Thursday below; Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and NPR also provide easy ways to access each one. Although we’re not able to meet in person, we are excited to still engage with this content together!
