Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from an Atlanta High School
Georgia Immigration Research Network founding members, Dr. Darlene Xiomara Rodriguez and Dr. Paul N. McDaniel, along with Dr. Lara Smith-Sitton (Assistant Professor of English at KSU), have partnered with Dr. Tea Rozman-Clark, executive director of Green Card Voices, along with the Latin American Association, Welcoming America, and local Atlanta area public schools, on the production of a new book focused on the diverse stories of immigrants and refugees in Atlanta.
Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from an Atlanta High School is currently in production and will be published in April 2018. The Green Card Youth Voices series is a collection of books dedicated to sharing the immigration stories of young, new Americans from all over the country. The upcoming Green Card Youth Voices: Immigration Stories from an Atlanta High School is a collection of 30 personal essays written by high school students in the Atlanta area. This will be the first book in this series focused on a city in the southeastern United States. Included with each essay will be a first-person video narrative, highlighting their personal journey. It will include links to the students' video narrative, a study guide, and glossary to help teachers use the book as an educational resource when teaching about immigration.
