Event Description

Help Wanted? Immigration and Work focuses on the stories of three groups: the Irish, who fled starvation at home in the mid-19th century and penetrated the urban workforce and helped build America’s railroads; the Norwegians, who came to farm the Midwest when land ran out in their country; and the Mexicans  millions of whom were recruited by American industry in the 1920’s as labor for American mills and factories, and then expelled when no longer needed. A portion of Destination America will be screened  followed by a discussion moderated by Professor Cristhian Espinoza-Pino.
