Becoming American – Program Four

Program Four: Help Wanted? Immigration and Work

Destination America, Episode 1, The Golden Door

Becoming American is an in depth series studying the immigration experience in America. This special six -week public programming event will feature a documentary film presentation and a moderated discussion led by Bill Westerman, PhD. The series is designed to encourage an informed discussion of immigration issues set against the backdrop of our immigration history.

From the very first American settlers, we have been a country founded and built by immigrants. Most immigrants come to America looking for a better life for themselves and their families. Part four in this series is centered around, Destination America’s “The Golden Door” episode. A carefully told story of the milliions of Mexicans who illegally cross the border into America every year. The journey is a dangerous one, but, usually their best possible opportunity for economic survival. Witness an overview of 350 years of American history, and the migration of Mexican, Norwegian and Irish immigrants and their impact on the country we know today.

This important collaboration, made possible by a grant from City-Lore through the National Endowment for the Humanities:Exploring the Human Endeavor, the Folk Life Center at Perkins for the Arts and the Burlington County Library System, will shed great light on the history of immigration in our country and how it had impacted the culture of our ancestors as well as the communities we live in today.

For further information, please contact Karen Abdul-Malik, Director, Folk Life Center at the Perkins Center for the Arts 856 235 6488.

All programs are free, open to the public and will begin at 6:30PM.

Presented by:  Folk Life Center at Perkins for the Arts and BCLS
