Read the Q&A

PBS spoke with Director and Producer Jennifer Maytorena Taylor and film subject Shane Atkinson on the making of "Redneck Muslim."​

PBS: What do you hope others take away from your story?

Shane Atkinson: I hope people will see my story and come away with the understanding that we can never give up on each other. It is tempting to look at those we may disagree with and say they are the problem and they are nonredeemable. Though we can't control others, we can look inward to see if we are the best version of ourselves. Rather than demonizing those we may disagree with, we should always be true to our best selves and take the high road. A verse in the Qur'an elaborates: 'Good and evil cannot be equal. Respond 'to evil' with what is best, then the one you are in a feud with will be like a close friend."
