Free to Use and Reuse: Arab Americans

Selected images represent the historical experiences and achievements of Arab Americans, primarily during the early 1900s when many people immigrated from Lebanon and the region known as Syria. A formal celebration of Arab American heritage occurs each year in the United States in April. Unless otherwise noted, the images are from the Prints & Photographs Division.
