Unlike most media concerning Muslims, the Ask a Muslim series focuses on a routinely overlooked community of American Muslims: African Americans. The African American of the 20th and 21st century has had a very significant role establishing Islam in America however Black authors, scholars, entertainers, and other individuals and groups of note are often ignored when discussions arise about Islam in America.
This 6-part web series offers the viewer unprecedented access to a handful of influential to everyday Black Muslims in the United States. It challenges them to answer questions about Islam from a pool of random questioners with limited (and sometimes tainted) access to information regarding Muslims, especially Black Muslims.
This web series from emerging filmmaker Idris Abdul-Zahir along with Ra'id De Veaux and Qasim Rashad, draws the viewer into questions from the public about the lifestyle, beliefs, traditions, and practices of American Muslims.
