Somali-American convenience store manager  Mohamed Ahmed creates short animated videos featuring “Average Mohamed” to counter recruitment propaganda that may contribute to the radicalization of young Muslim-Americans.

Articles in and USA Today explain the idea and context that inspired this “average Mohamed” to become a thought leader in his St. Paul, MN community, home to the largest Somali population in the US.

(On occasional Fridays, we highlight one entertainment option related to our clients or some aspect of our work to help you celebrate the weekend and possibly recommend to employers and other community supporters in the following week.)
