Exploring 150 years of Arab immigration
The Lebanese in America is a powerful, concise narrative of Lebanese migration to America, and it is available to host in your public library, local museum, community center or other public space.
It illuminates the role of Lebanese-Arab-Americans in creating modern America and shows that these immigrants came to the United States for similar reasons as other immigrant groups. They enriched American life, bringing new cultural traditions and contributing to America’s economic, social and political development. Along the way, they forged new identities with important consequences for both Lebanon and the United States. Complicated, diverse, and at times controversial, the history of Lebanese immigration engages an important national debate about the role of immigration in building America.
