Today, on this archive edition of Midday, Tom's guest is The New York Times best-selling author Irshad Manji. Her new book is called Don’t Label Me: An Incredible Conversation for Divided Times.
Quoting sources from Bruce Lee to Ta Nehesi Coates and drawing on her own experiences as a gay Muslim woman, she examines the rhetoric around diversity, and she calls for a new formulation for cultural and political discourse, an honest reckoning that shuns labeling people as a substitute for understanding them.
Irshad Manji on identity, culture, and the way we talk about the values we hold.
