The Arabic Program at Williams held an evening "Celebrating Arabic Spring" on November 3, 2011.

The event started by socializing with the guests over delicious Arabic refreshments and sweets. Professors Vargas and Khattab then introduced Arabic Spring, an occasion to celebrate with poetry originating in the uprisings in Egypt, Libya, and other countries in the Middle East. Students from all levels of Arabic study recited a selection of revolutionary poems and songs and native speakers, Mustafa M., Fulbright TA from Libya, and Omer, international student from Jordan, recited poems by Libyan Abdurrahman Alashmaw and Egyptian Mahmoud Darwish. The evening ended on a high note with a rap song in English titled "Libya Bleed" performed by two 101 students.
