What's it like to be a Muslim and living in the United States? This series attempts to find out, as it follows the daily lives of five American Muslim families in Dearborn, Mich., home to the largest mosque in the U.S. Each episode offers details of a world most Americans know little about -- the customs and celebrations of American Muslims, as well as the misconceptions, conflicts and differences they face both outside and within their own community. The families featured share the same religion but lead very distinct lives that at times challenge the Muslim stereotype.

All-American Muslim - African-American Muslims - Netflix

African-American Muslims, also colloquially known as Black Muslims, are a religious minority among both the larger African American and Muslim population of the United States. They are represented in various self-described Muslim sects such as the Nation of Islam. The history of African American Muslims is similar to the broader African-American history, and, too, goes back to the Revolutionary and Antebellum Eras.

All-American Muslim - Sects - Netflix

During the first half of the 20th century, a small number of African Americans established groups based on Islamic and Gnostic teachings. The first of such groups created was the Moorish Science Temple of America, founded by Timothy Drew (Drew Ali) in 1913. Drew taught that black people were of Moorish origin but their Muslim identity was taken away through slavery and racial segregation, advocating the return to Islam of their Moorish ancestry.
