Summary
"Valarie Kaur was a 20-year-old college student when she set out across America in the aftermath of 9/11, camera in hand, to document hate violence against her community. From the still-shocked streets of Ground Zero to the desert towns of the American west, her epic journey confronts the forces unleashed in a time of national crisis--racism and religion, fear and forgiveness--until she finds the heart of America ... halfway around the world"--Container.
