Walking with Superman: Day 51
It's two titanic tales from two very different destinations along Superman's coast-to-coast tour. The Man of Steel spends time with two Muslim communities, one in the boroughs of New York City, the other in a small town just outside of Jacksonville, Florida. While one is still recovering and rebuilding their lives and their bonds with their neighbors, the other is picking up the pieces of their recently-firebombed mosque, keenly aware of the fear and bigotry harbored by some in their neighborhood. Superman takes a deep, disheartening look into the scapegoating of a people and the deep scars that still mar this nation nearly ten years after the terrible events of September 11th, 2001.
