Immigrants today are treated as a single defined block, where every immigrant is thought to be the same. Immigrantly by Saadia Khan seeks to explore the intersectionality of racial identity, culture & class through the lens of immigrant experiences.
"What's in Name" is a special edition of The Alien Chronicles

About the Podcast
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.
