Becoming American: Film & Discussion Series
December 5, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Immigration has been an ongoing and central component of American history, with identifiable peak periods. Between 1820 and 1924, forty million immigrants were added to the population of the United States and in the process made immigration a major and defining aspect of American life. This opening program provides a historical context for the study of immigration, looking at the reasons for and consequences of the period historians call America’s “Century of Immigration.‟ nThe selected films for December 5 are New York, A Documentary Film: Episode 4, The Power and the People and The Jewish Americans: Episode 2, A World of Their Own. nThis program is free and open to the public.
