[Crowdfunding] Italian Immigrants in California on PBS

The BAIA community found this interesting crowdfunding campaign: Finding the Mother Lode: Italian Immigrants in California (film). The funding campaign is "to get this first-ever documentary on the early Italian immigration to California on PBS!"

“This excellent film fills a real gap in our understanding of the complexity of the Italian immigration experience,” says Carol McKibben, a historian at Stanford University, of our film, “Finding the Mother Lode: Italian Immigrants in California”. In it, we explore how Italian immigrants to California found economic success and social acceptance unlike any they had found in other parts of the United States. It is not a well-known story. The same is true also for the important role that Italian immigrant women played in building the family’s economy.We now have the opportunity to have this story broadcast on PBS (the US Public Broadcasting System), ... but we need your help!
