In My own Skin: The Complexity of Living as an Arab in America



Directed by: Jennifer Jajeh, Nikki Byrd

(16 mins) In My Own Skin sheds light on the complexities of the Arab American experience through candid, in-depth interviews with five young Arab women living in New York in the months following the September 11th attacks on the World Trade Center. Taking us beyond common stereotypes and misconceptions, In My Own Skin gives us a glimpse of the conflicts, joys and pressures of being a member of two very different communities. Great for classroom use!
