Modern Immigration


The current ongoing release of the 2000 Census data confirms the U.S. is undergoing a demographic revolution, a dramatic change in the racial and ethnic composition of the nation. In 1965, the old national-origins quota system, which strongly favored northern and western European immigrants, was discarded in favor of a more ethnically and geographically equitable system. The result is a vast increase in the number of immigrants and a dramatic change in the composition of the immigrant flow. This Jackdaw narrates the unfolding story through hands-on documents, charts, photo essays, recipes, reminiscences, a family album and political pamphlets. Historian: Christine Scriabine.
