In this day and age of information (& misinformation) overload, we bring you directly to the source to learn more about your Muslim neighbors and their beliefs. During this series, you will view a film about one aspect of Islam and will then have the opportunity to ask questions to a panel.

The first film, Muhammad: Legacy of a Prophet, travels in the footsteps of the founder of Islam to the Arabian Desert and the holy city of Mecca where Muhammad's story unfolded. But the film does not just stay in the past. Much of its story is told through the observations of contemporary American Muslims, including a fireman at the World Trade Center on September 11th, a second generation Arab-American family building a community based on Islamic principles, a Congressional Chief of Staff working for justice, and a refugee fleeing religious persecution, whose experiences in some way echo Muhammad's life. Don’t miss this PBS Program Club Pick. This film is not rated. No registration necessary.
