Gallaudet University has received a $1,300 award to host a six-week program series funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities entitled "Becoming American: A Documentary Film and Discussion Series on Our Immigration Experience" This series was a six-week public program featuring documentary film screenings and scholar-led discussions designed to encourage informed discussion on immigration issues against the backdrop of our immigration history.
The Drs. John S. & Betty J. Schuchman Deaf Documentary Center at Gallaudet hosted the "Becoming American" series. Films represented a selection of diverse immigration experiences drawn from both the past and the present. At each film screening we strived to add a "Deaf lens" to the topics raised via discussion. William Ennis, III, Ph.D., introduced each film, provide historical context and co-moderate discussions.
Gallaudet University was one of thirty-two sites nationwide selected to host this program series which was a project by City Lore in collaboration with the Immigration and Ethnic History Society and the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience. "Becoming American" was made possible by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the Human Endeavor.
The "Becoming American" film series was co-hosted by Multicultural Student Development and Mentoring and the National Deaf Life Museum.
