Abstract:

By 2056, most Americans will be non-white, descendants from peoples of Africa, Asia, Latin America. Today's minorities will themselves have become the majority. Speaking from his book "A Different Mirror", Dr. Takaki argues that diversity has been our manifest destiny from moment of first contacts between the original inhabitants and the Europeans on the eastern edge of the continent to the present. As counselors and educators, this new way of thinking will have an impact on how you view America and how you define what it means to be an American.
