THE ARAB AMERICANS places the Arab-American immigrant experience within the context of American history, telling the deeply relevant yet untold story of almost 150 years of enrichment of the American fabric by immigrants from the Middle East, North Africa, and the Arabian Peninsula to the United States. The documentary explores early and multiple waves of immigration, along with the tremendous impact of 9/11 on the Arab American community and its challenges and dreams in light of the zeitgeist.
After the screening, there will be a period of discussion and Q&A with the director, Abe Kasbo, and Professor Philip Kayal of Seton Hall University. Professor Amaney Jamal will act as moderator.
