Event Description

Who and where are Czech and Slovak immigrants and descendants in America today? We will examine geographic, demographic, social, and economic characteristics of these populations using data from the U.S. Census. We will also compare these groups to the overall US-born and foreign-born populations. Come learn about the current status of Czech and Slovak-Americans and discuss implications for the future.
