    • Abstract:
      Summary: "Many Voices, One Nation: Material Culture Reflections on Race and Migration in the United States shares in print the important stories, artifacts, images, and events featured in the National Museum of American History's eponymous exhibit. Through sixteen carefully selected essays from Smithsonian curators and affiliated scholars, this book reaches a broad audience and makes a major contribution to historical scholarship on the peopling of the United States and the field of material culture. Essays demonstrate how artifacts can be read to better understand issues related to nation, race and migration that have informed social interactions and cultural narratives locally, nationally, and globally. American culture and society emerges from exchanges between natives and newcomers, and these interactions constantly transform and enrich the nation. The variety of American stories and objects included in this volume brings our seemingly disparate pasts together to inspire possibilities for a shared future as we constantly reinterpret our e pluribus unum - our nation of many voices."--Provided by the publisher.
