Event Details

Join us for a six-part documentary film and discussion series on our immigration experience.

“Immigration and Popular Culture” looks at the ways the media and popular culture have historically taught newcomers how to “be American,” and how the rich contributions of different immigrant groups have transformed American culture and art.

This month's film is The Search for General Tso.
