Lexington's Muslim community works to dispel stigmas about faith

About 100 students, ages preschool to eighth grade, were gathered outside for a fire drill on Nicholasville Road when the driver of an 18-wheel truck blew the horn. He yelled curses out the window and made obscene gestures as he drove by. The principal of Lexington Universal Academy, a full-time Islamic school, thinks the man's behavior was triggered by the children's traditional Islamic clothing.
