In The Moment ... March 3, 2017 Show 042 Hour 1

We begin the hour with a conversation with Dr. Mohammad Zeeshan Qamar. As director of interfaith dialog at the Muslim Community Center of South Dakota in Sioux Falls, Dr. Qamar is often asked to talk about his faith with those who are curious or even suspicious. He discusses his journey to the United States, raising Muslim children in Sioux Falls, and how conversations with Christians and non-Muslims have helped him grow the depth of his own faith.

An art gallery in Rapid City is trying to open a conversation about contemporary Native American art. The Racing Magpie founders and in-house artists speak with SDPB's Chynna Lockett about their work.

South Dakota poet Patrick Hicks shares a poem from his collection “Adoptable.” This one is called “The Strangers.” It revisits the night the poet’s internationally adopted child arrived in his new country.
