We live in a time when the republican nominee for president calls for building walls on our national borders and banning immigrants from entering this country. Becoming Bronx is a web series that challenges those sentiments and instead highlights the diversity of this borough and the importance of its immigrants’ stories. Each video portrait gives the viewer a snapshot of the individual’s journey to this country as well as how each immigrant built and contributed to his or her community in the Bronx.  The subjects range in age and homeland, but are united because each contributes to the city with his or her culture, work ethic and hope in starting life anew.  Their stories create a map of rich narratives that helps us to better understand the Bronx of today.
