We’re fans of the new Museum of Boulder! And here’s one really, really good reason why: for the next 6 weeks, they are hosting a documentary film and discussion series to explore the history of immigration in the US. Sessions will be moderated by Dr. Nicholas Villanueva, a professor of Ethnic Studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder. This date is for the second film, “Promise and Prejudice.”

The topics for each week are:

Tuesday, January 22, 6-8pm | The Century of Immigration: 1820-1924
Tuesday, January 29, 6-8pm | Promise and Prejudice
Tuesday, February 5, 6-8pm | Between Two Worlds: Identity and Acculturation
Tuesday, February 12, 6-8pm | Help Wanted? Immigration and Work
Tuesday, February 19, 6-8pm | Family and Community
