Availability information for this program

The goal of the series "Being Muslim in America" is to provide U.S. students with dynamic slices of real human experience, particularly with persons coming from cultural and religious backgrounds that differ from the dominant culture, such as Muslim Americans. The series goal is for students to understand and appreciate cultural and religious diversity, as well as to understand how Muslim Americans make sense of what it means to straddle a number of cultural boundaries, integrate with the broader U.S. society, and form a uniquely American Islam. A viewable/printable instructor’s guide is available online.
