The discussion covered social and cultural impacts of 9/11 on America and political discourse, as well as how 9/11 has been experienced by Muslims and other people of color. Ali is a keen observer of American politics and provided insights into how 9/11 intersects with the current state of American democracy and the ongoing tensions relating to identity, race & ethnicity, and American nationalism.
