America's Immigrant Heritage

Every Thursday, from noon to 1 p.m., the Indiana Historical Society presents short films in the Cole Porter Room. And, there’s never a charge.

The current series highlights our country’s international heritage.

First up on 11 January is “Immigration and Cultural Change,” which reviews documents, dates and facts about the history of immigration in America.

On 18 January, it’s "Greek Americans", whose significant contributions, particularly in the areas of politics, architecture and theater, are explored in this short film.

"Italian Americans" are the focus for 25 January. This film explores the obstacles faced by Italian immigrants and their contributions to American society.

The Indiana Historical Society is located in the Indiana History Center, 450 West Ohio Street, Indianapolis. For more information on these films, call 317:232-1882 or 800:447-1830.
