When journalist Asra Nomani relocated to her home of Morgantown, West Virginia, she decided to seek solace at her local mosque during a difficult time in her life. Instead of solace, Nomani experienced what would later become the focus of the new PBS documentary, The Mosque in Morgantown.

The new film focuses on the journalist's fight to bring about social change in her religious community of Islam. Nomani and Brittany Huckabee, the film's producer, discuss highlights from producing the documentary. Asra Nomani also tells whether making the film made her think differently about her faith.
