Congress envisioned a white, Protestant and culturally homogeneous America when it declared in 1790 that only “free white persons, who have, or shall migrate into the United States” were eligible to become naturalized citizens. The calculus of racism underwent swift revision when waves of culturally diverse immigrants from the far corners of Europe...

Five Italian-American artists from New Jersey are exhibiting their work this month at the Caldwell Public Library, 268 Bloomfield Ave. October is Italian Heritage Month, and each artist is a descendant of Italian immigrants. The title of the exhibition, “The Golden Door,” refers to a 2006 Italian movie, “Nuovomondo,” about Italian immigration at th...

Their guns and their uniforms accorded them the power to keep these men fixed into place. Scenes such as this are recognizable as iconic images of Italy’s current crisis of migration and detention. They circulate widely in today’s media...

It's always interesting and fun to discover new stories, particular and unknown to me, about something beautiful and winning in the history of the Italian American community. Often these stories are about sport, which in America has seen the triumph of many Italian American champions. Today's story concerns 7 (SEVEN!) golfing brothers who filled th...

Growing up in an Italian-American household was, for me, pretty special. My mother, Gina, an immigrant from Calabria (the "toe" of the Italian "boot"), held on to so many of her family's traditions that at times, regardless of the fact that I was living in the United States, our home felt like an annex of Italy. To this day, my mother only speaks t...
