Five key moments emerge as turning points in U.S. immigration policy: 1790, 1882,
1924, 1948, and 1965. This exhibit explores the impact of these turning points and
the factors that influenced them, from global conflicts and economic conditions to
cultural trends and social aspirations.
Created alongside the exhibition, the Immigrant Stories oral history project draws on testimony gathered through the Legacy Series as well as ongoing interviews with people who have first or second-hand experiences of immigration.
