Muslim Youth Voices Launches New Resource for Thought and Discussion

Close up photo of a young African American woman wearing a green head scarf holding a beaded bracelet in front of her. Her hands can be seen and the bracelet also has a pendant in the shape of Africa. The woman is wearing black-rimmed glasses and has a serious expression. Logos for Center for Asian American Media, WORLD Channel, Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Arts appears together in a corner.
The new toolkit offers background information on the films and filmmakers, questions for discussion, fun activities and fascinating links, all in one place!

CAAM’s Muslim Youth Voices Project presents stories that convey the culture and diversity of Muslim Americans. Over the course of three summers in six cities across the country, Muslim youth were given the essential tools to tell their own stories on their own terms. The workshops resulted in short films, amplifying these young people’s voices, and illuminating the many identities and experiences of young Muslims in America.

In December 2018, 32 films made by CAAM’s Muslim Youth Voices Project participants began streaming for free, with support from Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art’s Building Bridges Program and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Visit the website to watch the films and engage with the content using the hashtag #MuslimYouthVoices.
