The Library Journal calls We Too Sing America: South Asian, Arab, Muslim and Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future, “[a] welcome addition to the growing literature of race, ethnicity, and religion from the perspectives of immigrant groups within the United States. Both the general public and policymakers will benefit.”
