“With hate crimes against Sikhs and Muslims on the rise, Morrison provides a voice to one of the deadliest Hate Crimes committed against the Sikh diaspora on August 5, 2012. Her storytelling not only pays reverence to the six lives lost that day but also resurrects the spirit of Chardi Kala, Relentless Optimism, in us all that the moral arc of the universe will always bend to the good."
~ Pardeep Singh Kaleka

“Rag Head is best described as awakened heart—that feeling of opening your heart to the world and having it touched. Sundeep Morrison creates and performs an interwoven story that leads the audience in a journey of love, hate, interdependence, and impermanence, challenging us all to be the best humans we can be.”
~ Arno Michaelis
Former White Supremacist
Since 9/11, there has been an alarming increase in hate crimes committed against Sikhs, Muslims and other immigrant communities. With their turbans and long beards, Sikhs are often labeled as terrorists and have become targets in the United States. There are roughly 500,000 Sikhs in the US, many of whom have been subjected to xenophobic harassment or violence. Inspired by actual events, Sundeep Morrison's one woman show, RAGHEAD, addresses hate, hope and American identity.
