My name is Saadia Khan. I am a social entrepreneur and the founder and host of Immigrantly. Immigrantly is a weekly podcast that deconstructs the archaic stereotypes of what it means to be an immigrant, a child of immigrants, a person of color, and everything in between. Each episode brings a fresh perspective on the issues we address. Our conversations are complex, challenging, and oftentimes messy. But I wouldn’t trade the messiness for anything, because what we have created instead is a new, ongoing dialogue full of rich nuances.

How do we navigate spaces in which we can have access to some privileges but not others? How can anyone claim their identity without first recognizing their entitlement?  Today, We will do a deep dive on these topics with Layla Saad. She is an esteemed writer, speaker, and podcast host.

Layla is the author of the New York Times Bestselling book,  Me and White Supremacy, providing the tools to go inwards as you begin to unpack how you benefit from and further white supremacy. It’s not only for white people. The exercises are formatted so that anyone who benefits from white privilege can do the work as well. Outside of the book, Layla is the host of the “Good Ancestor Podcast,” where she facilitates conversations on the intersections of race, feminism, identity, spirituality, and leadership to foster social change.
