American Muslims are using art as a vehicle for expression and social change. 

Anida Yoeu Ali is an international performance artist and writer who was born in Cambodia and raised in Chicago. 1700% is the name of Anida’s latest spoken word poem. The poem gets its name from the 1700 percent increase in reported hate and bias crimes against Arabs, Muslims and those perceived to be Arab or Muslim since the events of September 11, 2001. 

Recently, Worldview’s Assia Boundaoui sat down with Anida to talk about the interaction between identity and art.
