‘Ultra American: A Patriot Act’ Explores Muslim Identity In America

This week presidential candidate Donald Trump renewed his call for a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims entering the United States until “our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

A new play explores what it means to be a Muslim today in America. We’ll talk with stand up comedian and the writer and performer of Ultra American: A Patriot Act, Azhar Usman. The play runs through September 26th at the Silk Road Rising Theatre.
