On March 27, 2004 The Philadelphia Inquirer reported, "American Muslim children have been caught in the middle of the emotional aftermath of 9/11 and during the continued violent strife in Afghanistan, Iraq and Israel. 'It is easier to fear what you don't know. And most of us don't know much about Muslims or the Islamic faith,' Linda Ellerbee says in her calm, down-to-earth manner as she hosts 'Keeping Faith: Muslim Kids in America' at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow on Nickelodeon. It's the veteran journalist's latest Nick News With Linda Ellerbee special. The award-winning series is the longest-running children's news show in TV history...'Keeping Faith' echoes the straightforward and respectful tone of the previous specials. The casually dressed Ellerbee hosts the program while surrounded by a diverse group of young Muslims, who discuss what it's like growing up in America these days."
