VIDEO: Islam in America Part II

I've already posted the first part of this Rageh Omaar documentary here. Bwlow is Part 2 of this fascinating documentary.

Omaar traces its history in the US and talks to American Muslims about how their belief is compatible with the principles of American democracy. He also looks at the notion that American Islam is tied intimately to the African American struggle against slavery and for freedom from prejudice. There's also a fair bit of stuff on the establishment of Liberia, an African country created by freed African-American slaves.
