Sketchnotes on Rami Nashashibi Interview

The unexpected response to last week’s sketchnotes of the Seth Godin interview prompted us to reach out to Doug Neill and ask him if he’d be willing to do a series for us. He said yes, and now here’s the second installment in our series of sketchnotes. The subject this time is Krista’s interview with Rami Nashashibi, an American Muslim activist who founded the Inner-City Muslim Action Network (IMAN) on the South Side of Chicago.

As an editor and producer who has listened to the show many times during the production process, I’m finding it a great feedback loop from an external set of ears. And Doug hit on some of the key points that we hoped our listeners might take away from the conversation: hip hop and the arts as a way of humanizing and connecting our stories, the “incredibly diverse American Muslim experience” of dignity and disparities, and the importance of African-American narrative in the story of Islam in the U.S.

Listen in. Comment here and tell us what take-away phrases and ideas you might have added to the graphic record. And, please, continue to share your feedback about this medium and if you find it a gateway to the podcast.
