Muslim American: Inside a growing Michigan community
Muslim AMERICAN: Inside a growing Michigan community
About this project

Over several weeks and through a series of short videos, we explore the lives of American Muslims, focusing mostly on the Arab community in our area.

Metro Detroit has a high population of Arab Muslims and we'll hear from them directly.

Local Muslim Americans will tell us about the prejudice they’ve had to face, the dreams they have for our country and the ongoing fear of Islam.

Our series will also shed light on the Muslim religion, explaining the pillars of Islam and why some women wear the traditional hijab.

7 Action News Reporter Simon Shaykhet, Producer Alexandra Bahou and Photographer Johnny Sartin joined forces to take you inside this growing Michigan community.
