The Arab American Experience in Flint

Arab Americans have lived and worked in Flint, Michigan and its surrounding communities since the end of the nineteenth century. Despite their contributions to industry, the arts, and medicine, scant research has been conducted on the Arab American experience in Flint. This oral history project seeks to add to the diversity of experiences of people in Flint Michigan by collecting the stories of Arab Americans living in Genesee County, Michigan. 

Students conducted the interviews as one of their assignments for History 381, Gods of the City: Religion and the Urban Landscape. In addition to understanding the diverse contributions Arab-Americans have made to life in Flint, students were also interested in understanding the religious landscape of Arab Americans in Flint – especially post 9/11.

The interviews contained on this page were made possible through a partnership with the Department of History and the Arab American Heritage Council of Flint.

Cemetery Preservation Workshop

Thank you so Carters Cemetery Preservation for the amazing workshop. Students and alumni got the change to see how headstones are perserved and repaired. A few of them even got the chance to assist in the cleaning.
