Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning
Green Mountain Academy for Lifelong Learning welcomes Skidmore College Professor Amon Emeka to talk about the children of immigrants in the U.S. Underlying the recent debates over immigrants and immigration policy is the mostly unspoken belief that recent immigrants cannot or will not “melt” into U.S. society because of their Asian, Latin American, and Caribbean origins. This presentation will use the U.S. Census Data to trace patterns of social and economic integration among the U.S. born children of immigrants in the 21st century and find out whether they are succeeding and/or assimilating the way children of 20th century immigrants did. Registration is $15 in advance or $20 at the door. For more information or to register, please call 802-867-0111 or visit www.greenmtnacademy.org.
