The Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History in Washington has a new online exhibit which includes personal individual stories of people who have become American! Via Smithsonian
There are many pathways to being American. This online exhibit complements the physical, 20-year exhibit Many Voices, One Nation and features contemporary Americans whose global origins and connections influence how they make their life, career, and community in the United States. While each person’s point of departure and moment of arrival is distinctive, they all share similar experiences from their entrepreneurial careers. In reading their stories you can hear how they create new ventures while also cultivating relationships across multiple communities.
We invite you to learn more about these unique stories, objects, and experiences that offer insight into the shaping and reshaping of American cultures and communities.
