FOR AGES 55+ -- IMMIGRATION & THE UNEASY MAKING OF MULTICULTURAL AMERICA -- Why have so many millions come to the U.S. and how has each wave transformed American society? And why, despite our acclaim to being "a nation of immigrants," have Americans historically despised each wave of newcomers? This presentation explores the key periods of immigration in U.S. history, the major immigrant groups that arrived, their struggles to earn a living and adjust to new surroundings, and the contributions they made to American life. Presenter Edward T. O’Donnell is a history professor at Holy Cross College in Worcester. He is the author of several books and hosts a popular U.S. history podcast.
