Uniting NC has created a series of video interviews that tell the stories of immigrants in North Carolina. Today, we posted our newest.
Saleem’s story shows the complex paths that lead people from all over the world to our state, and it challenges the notion that there is a stark divide between immigrants and natives.
Saleem was born in the United States and grew up in North Carolina. But his father is from India. His mother is the child of a Japanese woman and an American serviceman. His family is Muslim.
Please listen to his story and tell us what you think.
