About the Display

April is Arab American History Month. Diverse interpretations of the American experience and diverse voices in American literature make America great. April is the perfect time of the year to celebrate the contributions of Arab Americans to this great nation, recognize their heritage, and gain an understanding of the issues that Arab Americans face in this country.
