Posted April 29, 2013


Dr. Michael Aaron Rockland returns to discuss the experience of becoming an American during FUSION 2013: Ethnicity in America: Becoming American Monday, May 6 • 7 p.m.

Dr. Michael Aaron Rockland returns to The Library with an examination of how various ethnic groups struggle to become American while simultaneously maintaining their identity and integrity. He explores how the “melting pot” as a metaphor describing American life has been replaced by the “salad bowl” or “the mosaic.” A look at the extraordinary diversity of the country that has sometimes been called “the United Nations in miniature.”  Sponsored by The New Jersey Council for the Humanities Horizon Speakers’ Bureau, Agraj Seva Kendra, India Association of Garden State, Enjoy Explore India and The Library.
