Zarah Magazine Visits Arabic Program
On October 29, Rachid Moukhabir and Bill Jackson of Zarah Magazine visited the SSU campus to learn about our Arabic Program and to teach SSU students in Prof. Abdelkrim Mouhib’s ARA 101 and ARA 201 about Arabic culture and Arab Americans in the Boston area. Zarah Magazine, which calls itself “The Voice of the Arab American Community,” publishes a monthly bilingual magazine (Arabic/English), a blog, and a video channel on YouTube. Students learned about the magazine’s efforts to inspire those in the Arab community in the Boston area to fully engage in American culture, and to build bridges between the Arab and American communities.
Look for a video segment and an article on the growth of the SSU Arabic Program in the November issue of Zarah Magazine at http://www.zarahmagazine.com.
