Muslims in Minnesota radio series
KFAI radio launched a month-long series on March 10, 2009 that explores what it means to be Muslim in Minnesota. This series compiles stories ranging from controversial to inspiring. Listeners will hear how a Muslim immigrant struggles with questions of identity, law, and faith after getting arrested for a crime and facing possible deportation. One story shows how some women are creating their own definition of feminism. Still another story asks what drives Minnesota Hip Hop artists who intertwine their faith with the pounding beats and steady rhythms of their art form. Some of the stories are produced by Muslim reporters who bring their own perspectives and insights to their work.
Muslims in Minnesota runs every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday at 6pm during the KFAI Evening News: 90.3FM, Minneapolis, and 106.7FM, St. Paul.
