Immigrating To America, II

Series Website »
Episode Guide »
Every person who lives in the United States is an immigrant or the descendant of someone who immigrated here. In some cases they were travelers looking for a place where they would be free to practice their traditions. In every case they were looking for a better life. Social tensions were always part of the immigrant experience. Burt explores how immigration has created social difficulties and also produced a new vitality. This program will show how immigration has transformed American society and culture and demonstrated that diversity, as well as unity, and is a source of our national strength.
