This new film,which opens the 22nd season of P.O.V.,PBS's award-winning nonfiction film series, gives audiences an insider's view of a little-known cultural fusion between Muslims and street beats that has been developing since the very beginnings of hip-hop culture.                                                                                                        The results is a suprising challenge to stereotypes of both Muslims and urban youth in America that encourages viewers to look critically at the "clash of civilizations" between Islam and the West.Jennifer Maytorena Taylor's New Muslim Cool has its national broadcast premiere on P.O.V. on Tuesday,June 23,2009 at 10pm thru September 22,with two specials in November and Jan.(The Muslim Obsever volume 11,Issue 27;Jun 26-Jul 2,2009)
