Loyalty: Stories profiles a diverse group of American Muslims who gave an oath to protect the United States and uphold its constitution. It shines light on the contradiction that arises when Muslims volunteer to defend a nation that does not always defend them. Through immensely personal stories, the series shows that “loyalty” cannot simply be reduced to one’s love of country but, in fact, takes many forms and is as complicated at the American Muslim experience itself. Follow the series here as it is released in full through 2020. The series is produced and directed by David Washburn.
