CANCELED- The Romey Lynchings

April 14, 2020 - 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
1317 W. Pettigrew Street

Join us for a screening of The Romey Lynchings, a documentary about prejudice and racial violence against Arab immigrants in the United States. Produced by the Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies, the film explores the lynching and murder of N'oula Romey and his wife Hasna Rahme in Lake City, Florida. Their murders were indicative of a widespread pattern of racially-motivated hostility, vitriol and physical abuse directed at early Lebanese immigrants who came to America to work and build a life between the 1880s and the 1930s. Screening will be followed by a Q&A led by Professor Akram Khater Co-sponsored by the Khayrallah Center at NC State. Contact: maha.houssami@duke.edu
