AND MOV INTERFAITH PRESENT A
CULTURAL/INTERFAITH TRIP TO DEARBORN, MICHIGAN
SATURDAY, JUNE 9 – SUNDAY, JUNE 10, 2018

This overnight trip to Dearborn, Michigan offers an opportunity to learn about how Arab-Americans have enriched the economic, political and cultural landscape of the United States and will shed light on the experiences of immigrants and ethnic groups coming to our nation. The itinerary, arranged by Janice Terry, retired Professor of Modern Middle East History at Eastern Michigan University, will include a private tour of the Arab American National Museum, a mosque tour, films, and ethnic foods. The trip will occur during the Muslim month of Ramadan providing an opportunity to participate in an iftar dinner (which breaks the fast at sundown) and a Film Festival at the Museum.
