Al Jazeera Correspondent - A Tale of Two Migrations

Please Log in or Register to watch this video.

When Al Jazeera correspondent Adam Raney's great-great grandfather left his German village in the 1870s, it was with the dream of making his fortune in America. He headed to a small, dusty cotton town in the Mississippi Delta - a young Jewish man in a post-Civil War South where freed slaves lived little better than they had for centuries before. By following three generations of Adam's family, A tale of two migrations: Chasing the American dream examines how policies and attitudes towards migrants and minorities have evolved in the decades since.
