America: The Great ‘Melting Pot’ Lives On!

We are a migrating people, and the stories we tell about our family journeys have shaped our identity as Americans. As we begin the debate on immigration reform, this week’s Heartland Labor Forum will tell our volunteers’ own migration stories of how we got to Kansas City or how we got to America. We hope that as we welcome our newest immigrants, we all remember what Martin Luther King said: “We may have come here on different ships, but we’re in the same boat now.” Tune in Thursday at 6pm, rebroadcast Friday at 5am.
