A feature interview with groundbreaking young Afghan rapper and activist, Sonita Alizadeh. Sonita joins Jian to discuss her remarkable story: She arrived in Iran as an undocumented refugee fleeing the Taliban; was almost sold by her mother as a child bride – twice; found her voice in writing and performing rap music; and found her strength in beginning an international mission to end child marriage. Sonita has now become a viral rap star and a human rights symbol and resides in the United States. In this conversation she unveils new information about her latest projects and her evolving dreams for change in the world. Plus, the Roqe Team reconvenes for Letters of the Week, and a tribute to an Iranian community friend who has been tragically killed in recent days.
