Talking Through Walls: How the Struggle to Build a Mosque United a Community tells the story of Zia Rahman, a retired engineer and devout Muslim American who prepared to go before the Zoning Board in his hometown of Voorhees, New Jersey, in hopes of creating a mosque in his community.
What Rahman didn’t expect was the hostility and fierce pushback he received from his neighbors. In a world fraught with religious intolerance, Talking Through Walls is the inspirational story of how interfaith leaders in South Jersey figured out a way to keep the peace and show the rest of the world what can be accomplished by the power of compromise and tolerance.
Talking Through Walls was a collaboration between Spark Media and Unity Productions Foundation.
