A State of Many Nations: Immigration and the Changing Face of Virginia

A public forum at the Virginia Festival of the Book, statewide public programs, and a teacher’s guide explaining Latino American history in Virginia.

Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, in partnership with community organizations across the Commonwealth of Virginia, seeks support from the National Endowment for the Humanities to develop and present a three-part project related to immigration and rapidly changing demographics in Virginia. The project is planned to encourage and facilitate a statewide conversation that explores the impact of recent immigration that is literally changing the face of Virginia. The project will include a public forum focusing on immigration, cultural diversity, and identity to be presented as part of the March 2016 Virginia Festival of the Book; a series of six book and film discussion programs offered in partnership with co-sponsoring organizations statewide; and publication and distribution of a Teacher's Guide on Latin American Immigration designed for use in middle and high school classrooms. The project will also lay groundwork for continuing efforts beyond the scope of this grant.
