Karima El-Hamraoui and Abir. Lucy Gellman Photos. Abir was performing alchemy in The Hill. Her hands fluttered over a pile of red and white onion, fine salt and flaked sumac coating the slices. She spoke in quiet tones as she worked, recounting bits of information about her children. A family of sunflowers bobbed deferentially in the background.
The first "Stir The Pot" also included a discussion of Mikki Halpin’s “Practical Activism: If You Want To Do Something, Don’t Do Everything.” The essay is in Julia Turshen’s Feed The Resistance . Thomas Breen Photo.
