Beyond Bollywood: Indian Americans Shape the Nation
Nov. 2, 2019 - Jan. 26, 2019
Indian Americans have been part of this region for over a century, though their history is often underrepresented. Bellingham’s farming communities in the north, the growing cities of the Eastside, Kent in the south—all have stories of struggles and success, exclusion and acceptance.
Today, one out of every 100 Americans traces his or her roots to India. From Seattle and Silicon Valley to Smalltown, U.S.A., the lives and stories of America’s 3.3 million Indian Americans are woven into the larger story of this nation—and have shaped what it is today.
