**Award of Awesomeness Nominee!** We Can Change the Past: Unearthing the History of Arab Indianapolis
November 8, 2021 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Watch the short film “When We Were Syrian: Early Lebanese in Indianapolis” here.
Watch a debut performance of the film, “When We Were Syrian: Early Lebanese in Indianapolis,” and learn more about the forgotten past of Arab Indianapolis.
“When We Were Syrian” is a deeply moving autobiographical short film that reveals a past overlooked in the dominant narrative of white, Protestant, Anglo-Saxon Indianapolis. The stories of these Arab ancestors and their contributions is a mirror through which we can recognize the truth: that we were (and are) a city of many peoples. That truth will lead us toward a deeper love of this place, the city we all share.
A partnership between Arab Indianapolis, Chitwood Media, and Central Library.
