Children of the Journey

American Theatre, 4.24.18

In the book Inheriting the City, Graduate Center Professor Philip Kasinitz and his co-authors contend, based on a study, that the progeny of recent immigrants have a unique opportunity to blend traditional and “Americanized” ways. They are “keeping some elements and discarding others as they go along…This biculturalism in no way prevents their joining the ‘mainstream,’” the book concludes. “Indeed, in their cultural, economic, and social activities, the children of immigrants increasingly are the mainstream.”
