An American Mosque, a documentary about the Yuba City mosque destroyed by arson and the community affected by this hate-crime, will be broadcast on public television stations in observance of Ramadan. An American Mosque is a groundbreaking film about religious freedom and the struggle against intolerance. Following the destruction of the mosque, the film documents the rural California community’s response to hate through painful but ultimately positive discussions about the perception of Islam in America and the Constitutional right to worship. In the end, determined members of different faiths come together to support the Muslim community as it peacefully rebuilds its mosque.
