We continue our tour of the refugee experience in Sweet Home Chicago. We visit with museum president Carey Cranston, and listen in on museum recordings from personal interviews featuring contemporary writers Ngozi Ukazu, Viet Thanh Nguyen and Dina Nayeri. We also read from written vignettes contributed by visitors who join the experiment by sharing their immigrant or refugee stories. The stage is set as we hear from perhaps more familiar voices from America's literary history: Updike, Wright, Dickinson, Dos Passos and McCullers. Together with these new voices our cultural identity is influenced, continually develops and is transformed through American artistry. These are voices of contemporary newcomers and sons and daughters of refugees and immigrants contributing award winning fiction, non-fiction, graphic novels and other genres to American literature.
