Unwelcome: The Muslims Next Door

CNN In America presents…
Unwelcome: The Muslims Next Door
Reported by Soledad O’Brien
Sunday, March 27 at 8p ET

It’s been said if Tennessee is part of America’s Bible belt, Middle Tennessee is the belt buckle. Murfreesboro, Tennessee (pop. 100,000) is home to 140+ churches… and one mosque. Just off Middle Tennessee Boulevard, hidden behind a dingy auto repair shop is where you’ll find the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro. A small sign outside a non-descript office building is the only thing identifying the 2,200 sq. ft mosque. Five times a day members of the Muslim community gather in Islamic Center of Murfreesboro to pray. Muslims have lived in Murfreesboro for decades, yet when plans to build a new mosque were approved this past summer, questions were raised and the resulting backlash and acts of vandalism revealed a community divided by deep-rooted suspicions about Muslims and Islam. Ten years after 9/11, this is the story of Muslims and non-Muslims, struggling to find common ground in America.
