Presentation script | American history homework help

 I need a script for the midterm presentation 

Subtopic: Relationship between immigration and disease, especially the

xenophobic and racist scapegoating of immigrants and their U.S.-born descendants. We want our classmates to understand that no pandemic, public health, or economic crisis, and no amount of fear, should give rise to prejudice and discrimination by any American. 

 We also want to examine why and how diseases disproportionately affected poorer communities (focusing particularly on areas with a high immigrant population) in U.S. cities during periods of large-scale immigration in the late nineteenth and early twentieth century. We’d like to understand the events and circumstances that lead to scapegoating and investigate how higher infection rates among the poor contributed to the public’s perception that certain diseases were being caused or perpetuated by one specific race, ethnic group, or economic class.
