The great Muslim American road trip

Kronemer, Alexander, (television director,, television producer,, screenwriter.). Morrison, Jeremy, (television producer.). Haydar, Mona, (on-screen participant.). Robins, Sebastian, (on-screen participant.). Unity Productions Foundation, (production company.). Public Broadcasting Service (U.S.), (publisher.). PBS Distribution (Firm), (film distributor.).

Summary: In this three-part travelogue, a young Muslim American couple discovers America's Muslim roots on Route 66. From Chicago to St. Louis to Amarillo, Texas, and across the Southwest, rap-star Mona Haydar and husband Sebastian Robins enjoy the iconic highway's well-known roadside attractions, and along the way discover its overlooked Muslim American story. Who knew that Muslims arrived in the 1500s, or that a Civil War-era Syrian camel driver helped survey the original Route 66? The couple stops to visit local Muslims on the way, gaining a better understanding of themselves as individuals, as a couple, and as Muslims.
