News, In The News

What is it like to grow up Muslim in America? The Huffington Post video series, “An American Dinner Table” has some answers. In the first installment released on June 6, 2016, three Muslim families talk about their experiences over dinner.   

Sarah Eltabib, an academic tutor at Adelphi University, participated with her family in the video series and speaks about culture, values and Islamophobia in regards to raising children in America.

“One of the hands-down best things about America is that is you learn to respect one another; in spite of our differences you can celebrate those differences,” Eltabib explained to her daughter in the video. “The only thing that you can do, or that I can do, or that Nana can do is just be good Muslims, to be good people, be good Americans.”

The video also features two other Muslim families, the Ayubs and the Tantawis, living in New York and its suburban areas.
