My Reading List

 

1. Integration Nation: Immigrants, Refugees, and America at Its Best by Susan E. Eaton

"As a coalition of over 200 member organizations, we chose this book to emphasize the need for full integration of New York's diverse immigrant and refugee populations to be celebrated, welcomed, and included in New York State."

2. We Too Sing America: South Asian, Arab, Muslim, and Sikh Immigrants Shape Our Multiracial Future by Deepa Iyer

"This book was given out to the attendees of our thirtieth anniversary gala because it is such an accurately devastating depiction of the vast damage inflicted by post-9/11 anti-Muslim rhetoric, and how it continues today with the Muslim Ban under Trump."

3. American Street by Ibi Zoboi

"We chose this book because it depicts the Haitian immigrant culture in the U.S., which the NYIC strives to represent."
