New Muslim Cool

A documentary about Jason Perez, an American man who’s a rapper, educator, father, Muslim, husband and idealist who is trying to get away from his old life with gangs and drugs. The documentary is not a typical feel good film but also moves beyond the usual stereotypes showing the reproduction and transformation of cultural repertoires. Great film and probably useful for teaching purposes as well.

The website New Muslim Cool has the DVD along with an educational toolkit (incl. lessons plans).
