This webinar will explain the legal and extra-legal challenges that Ottoman Syrian Muslim immigrants faced when they immigrated to the American Midwest before World War I. Learn how these Midwesterners built their communal power, creating a life that was American, Arab, and Muslim all at the same time, and how these lessons continue to apply today.
