America at a Crossroads: Homegrown: Islam in Prison
Radical Islam has spread throughout Europe. But will this militant mindset become “homegrown” and threaten the United States? A special in the "America at a Crossroads" series, "Homegrown: Islam in Prison" examines a crucial question: are U.S. prisons incubators for radical Islam and terrorist ideology, or is the rise of Islamic conversions behind bars a rare catalyst that is redeeming lives? The one-hour documentary airs nationally on PBS Monday, November 26, 2007 at 9 p.m. ET (check local listings).
