Beginning January 2014, twenty museums and historic sites across the country launched the National Dialogues on Immigration Project; a bold, new public initiative to use historical perspective to foster dialogue on immigration issues among people with diverse perspectives and backgrounds through visceral encounters with the past. The Atlanta History Center, in partnership with the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience, offers three public dialogues on immigration. Participants are taken on a forty-five minute guided tour of the temporary exhibition American Sabor: Latinos in U.S. Popular Music before participating in a facilitated dialogue that explores Latino immigration and assimilation through the lens of popular culture. This program is free and open to the public. Advanced registration is required. To register, please email KWhitman@AtlantaHistoryCenter.com. Support: This project is made possible with generous support from the National Endowment for Humanities, Institute of Museum and Library Services, and the Nathan Cummings Foundation.
