From A Woman's Point of View
Jennifer Maytorena Taylor is the filmmaker behind the documentary Muslim Cool. The POV series on PBS kicks off the 2009 season on June 23. The San Francisco Chronicle found this a spellbinding documentary.
Taylor shows how difficult it is to be a young Muslim in America today. She follows a Muslim American man, his wife and family. Hamza Perez is a rapper, educator, father, husband and idealist. It is fascinating how his beliefs have given him stability in these tumultuous times. The program airs at June 23 at 11 p.m. on WEDU.
