Practically Speaking Episode 48: The Immigrant Advantage
52 plays

practicallyspeaking-vocalo:

Is there truly a difference in the rates of success for the American-born children of recent immigrants versus Americans who are several generations removed from their immigrant roots? Among communities of color, this phenomenon of instilling specific cultural and ethnic values on American-born children is especially prevalent.

In this episode, we explored the distinct cultural differences between first generation children of immigrants and whether their cultural upbringing and norms have a palpable impact on their rates of academic and professional success.

Ruell Rogers, a professor at Northwestern, spoke about the differences between African American and Black Immigrant dichotomy. Alex Thibodeau conducted an interview with good friend, Harluxsh, who discussed the pressures from his Indian immigrant parents to succeed, and host Audra Wilson spoke with her Jamaican father, who shared his hopes and dreams for his two children and grandchildren.
