Support House Resolution honoring Ameen Rihani
Washington, DC | www.adc.org | April 11, 2012 -- Just recently, Representatives Nick Rahall (D-West Virginia) and Charles Boustany (R-Louisiana) introduced a bipartisan resolution honoring the life of Arab American writer Ameen Rihani (1876–1940) and celebrating 100 years of the Arab American novel. The resolution elaborates Rihani’s role in educating the American public about the Arab world at the turn of the century and describes his vision of a cooperative relationship between Arabs and Americans that emerged after his travels through the Arabian Peninsula in the 1920's.
The American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee (ADC) would like to alert its members to a very important positive resolution involving Arab American heritage and ask their assistance in pushing this important initiative forward.
