Newest Americans: Stories from the Global City

John Nicholas Brown Center for Public Humanities & Cultural Heritage
, Lecture Room

By mid-century, demographers predict that people of European descent will no longer be the majority in the United States. Newest Americans is a multimedia documentary and storytelling project that explores the implications of this seismic change from the perspective of the campus of Rutgers University-Newark, the most diverse university in the country for the past two decades. A unique collaboration between a university, a documentary production company and an international collective of photojournalists, the project affords a glimpse into world of the newest Americans and a vision of our demographic future.
