Patriots & Peacemakers:
Arab Americans in Service
to Our Country
Extended through August 12, 2012
Main Floor Gallery
Free with Museum admission
Arab Americans have been an integral part of the United States of America since its inception, contributing to our society in myriad ways, including public service. Patriots & Peacemakers: Arab Americans in Service to Our Country tells true stories of heroism and self-sacrifice that affirm the important role Arab Americans have played in our country throughout its history.
Patriots & Peacemakers highlights three specific areas of service: the U.S. Armed Forces, diplomatic service and the Peace Corps. Personal narratives highlight Arab American men and women of different national and religious backgrounds. The exhibition also encourages visitors to consider how commitment to service impacts them in their daily lives.
A companion exhibition, Fighting for Democracy: Who is the “We” in “We, the People”?, highlights the stories of seven diverse individuals, their service to their country during World War II and their civic engagement that helped to change American democracy for the betterment of all.
Both exhibitions are free with Museum admission and on display through June 10, 2012.
