Revealing Ramadan: 30 Days, 30 Voices [mp3, 6:41]

Sakina Al-AminOn this 27th day of Ramadan: Sakina Al-Amin, a young African-American woman who recently graduated from the University of Michigan. For the first nine years of her life, she was raised in a idyllic Muslim village nestled into the mountains of New Mexico, just north of Los Alamos. She shares two stories: one about celebrating Ramadan under the stars of the Southwest and the other of breaking fast with three strangers at a dollar store.
