Aymann Ismail

Aymann Ismail is a video editor and producer at Slate whose work focuses on identity and politics. His current project is "Who's Afraid of Aymann Ismail?" a video series moving beyond stereotypes of both Muslims and their self-professed adversaries, finding hope and fault in both, to ultimately try to assess whether our cultural divides really are as profound as they seem.
