AANM Podcast, Episode 2: Introduction to the Patriots & Peacemakers Exhibit

Candice and Nama introduce the newest exhibit at the Arab American National Museum; Patriots & Peacemakers: Arab Americans in Service to Our Country. They discuss some of the questions that the exhibit poses. What does service mean? What is a “patriot”? How have Arab Americans served the country? What kind of experiences have Arab Americans had while doing service?

This podcast also leads into the next two episodes, interviews with poet & Korean War veteran Dr. Samual Hazo and Peace Corps volunteer Nura Suleiman, both of whom are featured in the exhibit. Stay posted for these upcoming episodes in the following weeks!
