Part membership group, part think tank, and part movement builder, MPF is a gathering of peace and justice-oriented Muslims of all backgrounds who are dedicated to making the beauty of Islam evident in the world.

Martin and the Bus Boycott in comic form!



Are you the kind of funky hipster who wants to write a great PEE paragraph on MLK and the Bus Boycott but prefers to get their knowledge from a comic rather than a proper book or other superior source of knowledge?  You are?!  Then you, my friend, are going to L-O-V-E this comic about that very topic!  It looks like it was made in the Stone Age but the history buffs among you will know that is impossible because the Boycott was a 20th Century event!

HACKSAW RIDGE (2016)







HACKSAW RIDGE is the extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss [Andrew Garfield] who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, HIS CHRISTIAN FAITH TAUGHT HIM THAT killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he single-handedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braved fire while tending to soldiers and was wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers. Doss was the first conscientious objector to ever earn the Congressional Medal of Honor.
