Your Call 111008 America's Arab and Islamic Roots

How much have Arab and Islamic traditions influenced American culture? On the next Your Call, we'll have a conversation with Jonathan Curiel, San Francisco Chronicle staff writer and author of Al' America. According to Curiel, from its beginning, America intersected with Arab and Muslim culture, borrowing from it, admonishing it, fearing it and coexisting with it. So how do these common traditions challenge stereotypes about Arabs and Muslims? And can this shared history change hearts and minds? It’s Your Call, with Rose Aguilar and you.

Guest: Jonathan Curiel, author of Al' America: Travels Through America's Arab and Islamic Roots.
