Springpoint at Meadows Lakes
An examination of how various ethnic groups struggle to become American while simultaneously maintaining their identity and integrity. How the melting pot as a metaphor describing American life has been replaced by the salad bowl or the mosaic. A look at the extraordinary diversity of the country that has sometimes been called the United Nations in miniature.
