America at a Crossroads

The Mosque In Morgantown (#115)

"The Mosque in Morgantown" chronicles the unfolding drama within a Muslim mosque in small-town West Virginia and its struggle for identity in a changing world. The verite-style documentary follows the stories of mosque members, among them Asra Nomani, a former Wall Street Journal correspondent, as she pushes for change at the mosque her father founded three decades ago and also the path being driven by moderates and conservatives for change in a different direction. The film provides perspective on people determining the shape of their religious community. [56 minutes] Closed Captioning
