Homegrown: Islam in Prison

November 26, 2007

Prison ministry is nothing new in the United States. But in the last few years, Muslim prison ministries have garnered a larger share of the attention. Filmmaker Ginny Durrin found that for many prisoners, Islam provides the only true opportunity for redemption behind bars. We’ll talk with Durrin, who’s film “Homegrown: Islam in Prison” airs on KERA 13 at 10pm tonight. We’ll also be joined by Imam Muhammad Abdul Samaad, who has worked in North Texas prison ministry for two decades.
