Season 1 – Episode 08: The History Of Arab Immigration In Dearborn

Metro Detroit boasts the largest local concentration of Arabs in North America, many of whom settled in Dearborn. We trace that migration back more than a century. We follow how Ford’s $5 day brought many immigrants here, to how chaos in the Middle East drove many families out of their country and to southeast Michigan. Special thanks to the Arab American National Museum for its contributions.
