The Event

Arab Indianapolis – Film Screening and Discussion

Celebrate Arab American Heritage Month with our own Ruba Marshood, as we screen and discuss the documentary: Arab Indianapolis. This talk is suitable for all ages. Signed copies of the corresponding book will be available to purchase.

Indiana Humanities is supporting our film screening and discussion of Arab Indianapolis: A Hidden History, a film produced by Professor Edward E. Curtis IV, an Arab American and the William M. and Gail M. Plater Chair of the Liberal Arts at Indiana University, Indianapolis. The film explores what it means to be Arab in our state, and how Arab history is Hoosier history.

Arab Indianapolis is a community project that aims to document the long history and contributions of Arab Americans to Greater Indianapolis. Directed by Professor Edward E. Curtis IV, it began with a blog in 2020 and has grown to include this documentary, a book, lesson plans and a digital heritage trail. Learn more at
