Illinois Humanities Council funds American Arab

The Illinois Humanities Council has awarded a grant of $5,000 to in-progress Kartemquin Documentary American Arab.
 
Here is a statement from director/producer Usama Alshaibi and Associate Producer Tristan Hanson:
 
"Arab American is thrilled to announce a $5,000 grant from the Illinois Humanities Council in support of the project. We want to thank the Council for their vote of confidence, which has been a great boost to our spirits as we move full speed ahead with our 2012 fundraising efforts."
 
American Arab asks: "What does it mean to be an Arab living in America today?" and is currently in post-prdocution. You can help support the completion of the film by donating here.
