Fear, Faith And Fair Portrayals Of Muslims

Email a Friend
We're launching a new series on 1A called Big Screen/Small Screen. In this inaugural installment, we'll look at a group that's underrepresented on television: Muslims. Too often, when you see a Muslim character on a TV show, he is a terrorist. We'll talk about the long effort to portray Muslims fairly in Hollywood and why such narrow depictions are particularly dangerous in an age of Islamophobia.
