Documentary Screening & Discussion: The Romey Lynchings

February 24, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Join us for a screening of The Romey Lynchings, a documentary about prejudice and racial violence against Arab immigrants in the United States. Produced by the Khayrallah Center for Lebanese Diaspora Studies, the film explores the lynching and murder of N’oula Romey and his wife Hasna Rahme in Lake City, Florida. Their murders were indicative of a widespread pattern of racially-motivated hostility, vitriol and physical abuse directed at early Lebanese immigrants who came to America to work and build a life between the 1880s and the 1930s. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on issues of race, migration, and violence.
