Summary
Multimedia Presentation contains one DVD and one CD-ROM. The DVD: A Promise of Freedom is an inspiring short film for immigrant audiences based on the National Constitution Center's award-winning presentation Freedom Rising. This 12 minute film focuses on the history and founding of our nation and the important rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship. The role of immigration in U.S. history is highlighted throughout the film. Accompanying the DVD is a discussion booklet that aims to encourage discussion and review the basic concepts of American democracy outlined in the film. A Promise of Freedom is an excellent way to begin a session on immigration or citizenship. The CD-ROM: Becoming a U.S. Citizen: An Overview of the Naturalization Process is a 10-minute Flash presentation designed for immigrants who are new to the United States. This short multimedia presentation provides a general overview of the naturalization process including where to find immigration information and the general requirements for obtaining U.S. citizenship
