November 2, 2017

  1. Screening of The Diplomat

    5:30 PM – 7:30 PM

  2. Syrians in Massachusetts: The First Twenty Years

    6:30 PM – 8:00 PM

    In the 19th century, Massachusetts had the largest Syrian population, bigger even than New York's, where the “Mother Colony” was located. The floodgates to thousands of immigrants opened in 1878, when whole villages in Lebanon and Syria began to be depopulated as a result of mass migration to the United States. Boston was the site of an early and important ‘Syrian colony,’ but Lawrence, Massachusetts, grew into a much larger one, with almost nine hundred Syrians working in the textile mills. Worcester, Fall River and Springfield also had large colonies. This is the story of Arab Americans at its very beginning, and much of it is still relevant to what is happening today.
