In this extraordinary period of history, there are displaced people all over the world traveling as refugees or immigrants to find new homes with safety and economic security. We’ll look at:
Ghana: which, this year, celebrates 400 years of the first slaves arriving from the West Coast of Africa to the U.S., and invites their descendants to come home.
France: after years of French Colonialism in several African countries, history turns back on itself. Because of wars and famine, many people from these countries find themselves refugees and turn to the once Colonial power to give them succor.
US reaction to refugees and Immigrants from selected countries: What is our historical role with thee groups? What’s happening to our invitation to all the tired and hungry of the world? What are the implications of our actions in the moral core of our beings?
