The Cultural Program

The Cultural Program consists of various projects established by the Committee which, to date, have been primarily for cultural presentation and historical documentation.

One project was the production of a film which highlighted the accomplishments of Syrian Lebanese Americans who had immigrated to the Southern portion of the United States. The film reflected that their contributions had an important impact on the development of the South. Another project was the production of a slide-film documenting the Birth Of The Federation with special recognition to those individuals and clubs who played a major role in its establishment in the 1920's and 1930's.

The Smithsonian Institute in Washington, D.C., and the Barker Center located at the University of Texas at Austin, have been designated to preserve the archival materials belonging to the Syrian Lebanese Americans. This project should facilitate the development of an appropriate exhibit of historical for use by the Foundation and Federation.
