Join the Immigrant Learning Center and Emerging America for a free webinar on telling immigrant stories as part of, not something separate from, the American narrative. 

Immigrant stories are interwoven in the study of literature, history, and civics, and how we handle discussion of these stories has become an important topic in and of itself, for educators, and for students.

In a national moment in which how we talk about history and one another is under scrutiny, this discussion could not be more timely. 

In this free webinar, we will learn how to tell immigrant stories as part of, not something separate from, the American narrative amid all the anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies. Experts in journalism, history and storytelling will examine the latest book by NPR’s Maria Hinojosa, Once I Was You: A Memoir, outline the history of immigrant narratives in the U.S., and offer strategies to shift the discourse on immigration.
