Immigrant Nation explores our connections to immigration, past and present, through storytelling.
At the heart of this project is a simple idea: the U.S. is a nation shaped by immigration, and most families have personal story about it. These stories, whether they happened generations ago or quite recently, are not often shared. We want to bring them to the surface - exploring the interconnectedness of these narratives.
Immigrant Nation has three components:
- this web site
- a series of short documentary films
- live events in schools, museums, libraries, film festivals and other public spaces designed to engage diverse communities in sharing their immigrant stories
