'A is for Arab' exhibit At Tri-C Westshore

The Westshore Campus of Cuyahoga Community College will host the traveling “A is for Arab: Stereotypes in U.S. Popular Culture” exhibition Monday, April 14 through Friday, April 18.

This powerful and compelling exhibit reveals and critiques the stereotypical portrayals of Arabs and Muslims in U.S. popular culture. It provides historical context about these images, which range from film stills to comic books to editorial cartoons. This traveling exhibition aims to educate and stimulate discussion about the impact of stereotypes on both individual perceptions and national policy.

The exhibition is free and open to the public Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m. – 9 p.m.; and Friday, 8 a.m. – 1 p.m. For large group visits (10 or more), please contact Asst. Dean of Student Affairs Andrew Cox at 216-987-5849 or Andrew.Cox@tri-c.edu.
