Two illegal immigrants: one a present-day Chinese man who overstays his visa, and the other William Bradford of 17th century England, who sailed on the Mayflower.
See their stories told in a 54-foot graphic mural by internationally known artist Wen-ti Tsen, illustrating the complexities of modern-day immigration issues.
This event is part of I Am Global Week. It is sponsored by the Ethics Center, with support from the Office of the Provost, the Office of the Dean of Arts and Sciences, and the Office of Experiential Learning and Teaching, in collaboration with the EL16a class, "The Immigrant Experience in Waltham: A Service-based Practicum."
The artwork was created through the Chinese Progressive Association, with support from Mass Humanities.
