A Different Mirror
With illustrations, photos, poems, letters, and work songs, this book traces the history of ethnic diversity in the United States offering readers a different mirror and more complete history of our country. The stories of American indians, Africans, Chinese, Japanese, Irish, Jews, Mexicans, Vietnamese, Puerto Ricans, Filipinos, Afghans, South Asians and others who have made the United States a beacon of multiculturalism reveal the injustices of discrimination while celebrating the dream and spirit of immigrants and the hope and promise they bring.
