Current events and how they are presented in the media shape our global perspective. Is it possible for stories told about and by people with Muslim-world backgrounds to change perceptions and breakdown stereotypes? If so, what would people of Muslim-world backgrounds hope non-Muslim audiences would know about them and what changes would they hope to impact within their own Muslim communities? Hear how artists and others from Muslim cultures are finding their voice and making themselves heard.
