Announcements and Discussion
Hi: I am hoping to use crowd sourcing to solve a riddle: Sometime in the early 1920s there was an editorial cartoon published about the Emergency Quota Act of 1921. It shows a doe-eyed child at Ellis Island alone on one side of a gate, and hundreds of admitted immigrants on the other side of the gate.

Hello H-Ethnic subscribers,
I write to introduce myself as a new editor for the network.
My name is Alyssa Ribeiro, and I specialize in late 20th-century urban history, race, and ethnicity. My most recent work has looked at black and Puerto Rican relations in postwar Philadelphia. I currently teach US history at Allegheny College.
I hope that H-Ethnic can foster discussion and debate, serve as a conduit for information about opportunities, and host resources useful for teaching and research.
