Exciting new nation-wide initiative on immigration, then and now…

“In 2014, twenty leading history museums and cultural centers across the country will launch local public dialogues on immigration in 17 cities and 13 states, from Georgia to Washington state. Employing innovative dialogue tools, participating sites will engage nearby communities in discussions about American immigration from past to present. Sites include former historic immigration stations; places that highlight immigrant stories; civil rights, human rights, and social justice institutions; sites near borderlands addressing issues of belonging and exclusion; and sites that raise questions about regional and national identity as a way to address increasing diversity in their communities. While some dialogues will connect to a featured exhibition, others will help to create exhibitions. Learn more about the Dialogue Programs here.
