Abstract:

"Nabil drives a cab in New York City while Tarek is a stockbroker in Los Angeles. Usla is a junior partner in a Chicago law firm and Adel runs a gas station in Venus, Texas. For these and approximately seven million other Muslims in this country, the terrorist attacks of September 11th brought painful challenges to their notions of identity. From a sample group that spans recent immigrants to third-generation citizens, this program presents a series of portraits depicting Islamic lifestyles in a post-9/11 America. Candid interviews bring home the difficulties faced by Muslims in America, as well as the new perspectives they have achieved."--Container.
