WE ARE HOME Becoming American in the 21st Century: An Oral History

by | Read by Ray Suarez

Contemporary Culture • 11 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2024

Longtime television and radio broadcaster Ray Suarez's professional voice, ease of delivery, and acute sense of story are a pleasure to listen to. His intimate performance gives the many oral histories and profiles in this audiobook a cumulative power. An empathetic reporter, Suarez has spent years gathering the material for this timely appreciation of immigrants at this fraught moment in this country's relationship with those seeking refuge here. He shares the complex history of immigration legislation and focuses on the challenges beyond the cacophony surrounding the Southern border. He recounts a tapestry of experiences ranging from the tragic--an Afghani who worked with the U.S. and struggled to get his family here--to the uplifting--a Vietnamese family who created a national baking company.
