America is the only place I know where people arrive from somewhere else and believe they can truly belong — they believe they can be an American. That doesn't happen anywhere else... (Dick Gephardt)
(PRWEB) October 20, 2016
The politics of immigration have created a lot of impersonal dialogue. "The American Immigrant" is a means of reconnecting the faces of real people to this controversial topic. Barbaro Garbey left Cuba to become a professional baseball player in America. Rolando Rodriguez was uprooted from Mexico to Texas, and eventually became a well-known pastor.
Nabiel Fareed left everything he knew in his Palestinian village of Kufr Rai’ to go to college at Oklahoma State University, then become successful in international business. Morris Drachman trekked across the Atlantic to make a living in New York. These are just four stories in "Volume One: The Outsiders" of "The American Immigrant" series, out October 20.
In alignment with the upcoming election, Gephardt and Russell take the time to make these stories come alive as readers learn about immigration and the personal impact it has on every single person in the United States.
"Volume One: The Outsiders" will be one of many pieces published under "The American Immigrant" name. This particular volume highlights four categories:
- The Refugee
- The Poor
- The Muslim
- The Illegal Immigrant
This Amazon Kindle Single will be available on October 20.
Readers and interested voters can also tune in online on October 20 at 7 p.m. EST to see former House Speakers Gephardt and Newt Gingrich reflect on the past and vision cast for the future of our country. "Preserving Our Republic: A Conversation with Dick Gephardt and Newt Gingrich" will be streamed online through both Gephardt's and Gingrich's social media platforms. REAL Talks Atlanta will host this event at the Atlanta History Center. Patricia Murphy, national political correspondent for The Daily Beast and columnist for Roll Call, will moderate.
