A well known Sikh activist, filmmaker, and civil rights legal professional asks: How do we adore in a time of rage? How will we repair a damaged global even as now not breaking ourselves?
“Valarie Kaur’s tough memoir provides a competent ethical compass guided via modern love.”—Michelle Alexander, creator of The New Jim Crow
Valarie Kaur describes modern love as the decision of our time, an intensive, pleased follow that extends in 3 instructions: to others, to our warring parties, and to ourselves. It enjoins us to peer no stranger however as an alternative take a look at others and say: You are a part of me I don’t but realize. Ranging from that position of marvel, the sector starts to modify—this is a follow that may develop into a dating, a group, a tradition, even a rustic.
Kaur takes readers via her personal riveting adventure—as a brown woman rising up in California farmland discovering her position on the earth, as a tender grownup galvanized via the murders of Sikhs after nine/eleven, as a legislation pupil combating injustices in American prisons and on Guantánamo Bay, and as a lady looking to heal from her personal studies with sexual attack and police violence. Drawing from the knowledge of sages, scientists, and activists, Kaur reclaims love as an energetic, public, and modern drive that creates new chances for ourselves, our groups, and our global. See No Stranger is helping us believe new techniques of being with each and every different—and with ourselves—in order that in combination we will be able to start to construct the sector we wish to see.
