Abraham’s Children by Nina Froriep

Abraham’s Children: A stark, direct, humorous and serious look at growing up Muslim in America. 

Social concerns, the event of 9-11, war, and fear of the unknown have led many non-Muslims in America to focus on distinctions between Muslims and non-Muslims. The film openly points out that stereotypes hurt people.  My review housed at the Educational Media Reviews Online database supported by the University of Buffalo Libraries.  EMRO; your connection to quality open access reviews.
