First Person American is a neat website that has some resources now, but won’t be completely operational until July 4th. It has multimedia recounting the travels of modern immigrants to the United States. In addition, if you are somehow connected to an immigrant, but aren’t one yourself, you can share cultural-related memories.
Below, I’ve embedded a short video explaining the project. I’m also adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures and to The Best Sites For Learning About Immigration In The United States.

First Person American (FPA) worked with Active Voice and Shelbyville Multimedia to produce 5 short films. These 5 short films capture small acts of kindness, big-hearted moments and simple but life-changing connections. The first 5 films are serving as a pilot for future short films. To continue the project we need as much support as possible! Thanks again!
