Group discussion facilitated by historian and lawyer Dr. T.J. Davis. The United States of America has long touted itself as a land of immigrants and has grown phenomenally from migration since its beginnings in an ever expanding global economy. Yet the source and substance of immigration have been topics of continuous debate. How do domestic conditions, regional competitions, geopolitics, and foreign policy affect the discourse about who could and should become an American? How do immigrants become Americans? How do immigrants affect American vitality? Join us for a Frank Talk to ponder the question, what does it mean to be an American. Here’s a booklist for Immigration in America.
Frank Talks are free, thought-provoking, expert-facilitated discussions on important issues facing our communities produced in partnership with Arizona Humanities and the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records.
