Program Description

Event Details

This presentation is all about honoring our brave ancestors who came to this country with little more than their hopes and dreams. In this interactive talk, presenter Steven Frenzel will show scenes that vividly recreate both classic and modern immigration stories, featuring The Godfather Pt. II, Hester Street, Rounders, In America, Golden Door, and many more. We’ll even enjoy the rousing number “America,” a musical argument about immigration from West Side Story!
