New TLC Show “lifts the veil of these present day stereotypes”
Following the lives of 5 Muslim families from Dearborn, Michigan, TLC delves into what it is like to be Muslim in America. TLC’s All American Muslim will air November 13th @ 10pm ET/PT. This new groundbreaking reality series follows the lives of five Muslim families in Dearborn, MI, one of the oldest Muslim communities in America. The powerful new eight-part series goes inside the rarely seen world of American Muslims to uncover a unique community struggling to balance faith and nationality in a post 9/11 world.
The families featured in the series share the same religion, but lead very distinct lives that often times challenge the Muslim stereotypes we see too often. Each episode offers an intimate look at their customs and celebrations, as well as the misconceptions, conflicts and differences they face outside—and within—their own community. The families on the series share their biggest celebrations and their unexpected challenges. The show lifts the veil of these present day stereotypes and shows the depth and variety present among American Muslims.
As you can imagine, conversations are heating up across social media and beyond. Fringe anti-Muslim organizations are trying to utilize this show as a platform to spread their hate messaging in attempts to control American opinions. So it is critical that that both American Muslim and American non-Muslim communities are a part of this important conversation as a move that will surely inspire and broaden the public discussion about this community at a time when US public opinion of Muslims is at an all-time low. Ultimately, All-American Muslim is about civic duty, patriotism, religious freedom, the importance of family, and striving to live ‘the American dream’. Your participation is critical to representing the rich spectrum of opinions on this show and themes it explores.
Tune in starting November 13 @10pm ET/PT – and until then, watch the show opening here from the AllAmerican Muslim Facebook Page and if you like what you see, like the All-American Muslim Facebook page.
