Mooz-lum: A fresh perspective on Al-Islam and Muslim Americans.
19 February 2011 | by taqwatvSee all my reviews

President Obama said in his 2011 State of the Union Address - "American Muslims are part of the American Family".

Mooz-lum was in theaters less than 1 month from this historic statement. A story about a yong Muslim boy Tariq (Evan Ross) growing up as a Muslim in America. We experience his challenges, his rebellion and most of all his emotional struggle in accepting the religion that he was born into while living in the country that sometimes reject and ridicule it.

I strongly suggest non-Muslims take a leap of understanding the American Family and go see this film. Directed by Qasim "Q" Basir and a star studded cast including Nia Long, Evan Ross, Danny Glover and more.
