Notes: Originally broadcast on television in 1996.
They came from the cultured cities of the north and the hardscrabble farms of the south. They battled prejudice and ignorance to make a better life for themselves. They fought to keep their traditions intact even as they were pressed to assimilate. Eventually, they were embraced by the nation named after one of their own. Discover how World War II was pivotal in winning acceptance for America's Italian immigrants and see how, through entertainers, the Italian-American community completed their transformation from outsiders to a defining element of mainstream America.
