Teaching Uyghur in America

Over the past few years, China has increased its internment and surveillance of the Uyghur people for expressing their culture and Muslim religion. This has spread to the diaspora, where the community lives in fear of retaliation for family members back home, even for something as basic as teaching the Uyghur language itself. So, Ahmed talks to journalist Megha Rajagopalan about her groundbreaking reporting and the context for China’s growing surveillance state. Then, he talks to activist and teacher Irade Kashgary, co-founder Ana Care and Education, a Uyghur cultural and linguistic after-school program for kids and young adults in Northern Virginia.
