FRONTLINE: Muslims Series

Lectures curated around FRONTLINE: Muslims, which examines Islam's worldwide resurgence through the stories of diverse Muslims struggling to define the role of Islam in their lives and societies.

Muslims account for one-fifth of the world's population, but most Americans know little about their faith, Islam, which continues to be one of the fastest growing religions in the United States and around the world. What does it mean to be a Muslim today? Does Islam deserve its reputation as a patriarchal, authoritarian, and anti-Western religion? What is the role of Islam in movements for political and social change? FRONTLINE explores these and other questions in this filom, a program examining the different faces of Islam's worldwide resurgence and the fundamental tenets of the faith.
