BETWEEN TWO WORLDS: IDENTITY AND ACCULTURATION
Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on Our Immigration Experience is a six-week public program featuring documentary film screenings and moderated discussions designed to encourage an informed discussion of immigration issues against the backdrop of our immigration history.
“Between Two Worlds: Identity and Acculturation” looks at how immigrants react and adjust to living in a new country and culture, and how they bridge the divide between the traditions and values of their native countries.
