University of Georgia's Arab Cultural Association and Athens for Justice in Palestine; Georgia State University's Middle East Socio-Political Association (MESPA); Emory University's Arab Cultural Association; and Agnes Scott's Programming Board and Student Association Leading Awareness in the Middle East (SALAM) are proud to collaborate for the first time and present....
Come one, come all, to the first ever Atlanta Arab Night! This event is designed as a multifaceted cultural showcase of what Arab culture is comprised of, and what makes it so wonderful! The theme is Once Upon a Time, or كان يا ما كان in Arabic, to signify this new beginning to what will hopefully be a wonderful tradition.
These four universities have come together to present a diverse array of acts to show the rich culture of the Arab world, including singing, dancing, and spoken word. Those in the audience are encouraged to wear traditional clothing from any Arab country of choice or the colors of their country's flag. You can even bring your flag to wave in the audience!
And of course, the most exciting part - after the student performances, we will have a huge portion of the show featuring famous Palestinian-American comedian Yousef Erakat aka FouseyTUBE! Make sure to check out his channel here:www.youtube.com/fouseytube. Yousef is performing here as a part of his "My name is Yousef" tour and will be entertaining you all with a variety show.
