Becoming American: Promise and Prejudice

Becoming American: Promise and Prejudice

Funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities, Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on Our Immigration Experience will provide participants the opportunity to explore both the history and impact of immigration in the United States. Insightful discussions will be led by Duquesne University scholars Dr. Jennie Schulze, associate professor of political science, and Dr. Emad Mirmotahari, associate professor of English.

Program Two: Promise and Prejudice with Dr. Emad Mirmotahari. This film explores the historic and current tension between Americans’ acceptance of immigrants and the periodic backlash prompted by concern for the economic and cultural effects of newcomers.

This program is at the Jewish Community Center Katz Theater, 5738 Darlington Road, Pittsburgh PA 15217. This event is free and open to the public.
