A two-part series. This week, film and music from the 1920's with a brief look at immigrants pouring into America at the time. Next week is completely dedicated to our immigrant ancestors with the documentry: "Island of Hope--Island of Tears." From 1892-1954, Ellis Island was the port of entry for millions of European immigrants. Fascinating archival footage tells the moving story of families with dreams of opportunity, leaving their homes with what they could carry.
