Explore the multi-ethnic heritage of the United States, providing valuable insights through the experiences of earlier generations who came to this land as 'new' American and the reactions they generated from those already here. The trials and triumphs of those coming to America is often a story of painful discrimination and injustice and yet probably no nation in human history has given more opportunity to strangers. Covering a variety of multi-cultural issues and perspectives, this course will help explain the how and why of America's rise to greatness as 'a nation of immigrants.'
