Islam, the fastest growing religion in the world, has been part of American culture for more than 100 years. Explore the challenges Muslims have always faced fitting their religion into the American lifestyle and the new ones they're encountering in the wake of September 11, 2001. Includes one short segment and two feature segments.
  • The History and Teachings of Islam — Discusses the divine revelation that gave birth to a world religion.
  • Old Faith, New Prejudice - Looks at how the nearly seven million people in the U.S. who follow the Islamic faith were mostly ignored — until after the 9/11 attacks.
  • Casting Recall — Examines Hollywood typecasting, especially the stereotype of the Arab villain, and how it works to perpetuate religious prejudice.
