We Are All Migrants

Participatory Portraits

Yes, a truism for the United States; we are all migrants, including the first ones who made their ancient way from Africa via Asia. Migrants are ourselves, our parents, our grandparents, and more, back generations for many. We came by choice, by force, by happenstance. We arrived yesterday, today, and will arrive tomorrow. We've not always been welcome. This participatory project invites us all to own up to this American portrait.
