LOCAL>> President George W. Bush – Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants

Presented by Commonwealth Club at Streaming Arts

Apr 26 2021
LOCAL>> President George W. Bush – Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants

The former president talks about his book of paintings and stories with Kori Schake

The issue of immigration stirs intense emotions today, as it has throughout much of American history.

But what gets lost in the debates about policy are the stories of immigrants themselves, the people who are drawn to America by its promise of economic opportunity and political and religious freedom—and who strengthen our nation in countless ways.

Since leaving office, President George W. Bush has used the art of painting to honor the everyday heroes of America. His new book, Out of Many, One: Portraits of America’s Immigrants, shines a spotlight on America’s immigrants, and their stirring stories, to highlight how hard work, strong values, dreams, and determination know no borders or boundaries.

Join us for a special conversation with President Bush as we gain a better appreciation for the humanity behind one of the most pressing policy issues of our time and the countless ways in which America, through its tradition of welcoming newcomers, has been strengthened by those who have come here in search of a better life.
