Thirty years ago, MPAC presented our first-ever Media Award to Morgan Freeman, for the role of “Azeem” in Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. It was through his portrayal of Azeem, a heroic Muslim character in a blockbuster movie, that Morgan gave us a beloved character to take pride in, and encouraged others in the entertainment industry to follow suit.
