Bluffton hosts a compelling travel exhibit called "A is for Arab"

Posted: Updated:
BLUFFTON, SC (WTOC) -

A powerful and compelling exhibit in the lowcountry, the University of South Carolina Beaufort host "A is for Arab," a travelling exhibit featuring items collected by Dr. Jack Shaheen.

The exhibit includes everything from film stills to comic books. Dr. Shaheen was on hand Monday night to sign his new book associated with the exhibit and to discuss his work.

"This exhibit illustrates how Arabs have been perceived in American popular culture, so anyone coming to this exhibit can trace the history of how we perceive the peoples of the Middle East," said Dr. Jack Shaheen.

The exhibit will run through Sunday at the Hilton Head Gateway campus library in Bluffton. Anyone can attend.
