“New Muslim Cool” follows the lives of Hamza Perez, a Puerto Rican American Muslim rapper (yes all rolled into one!), his family, and his community as they navigate the paths of religion, race, politics, and culture which intersect their lives in post-9/11 America. It is a moving story that showcases the rich diversity of Islam in America,
and which challenges many preconceived notions of what being Muslim in America means.
