Great Immigrants - The Pride of America

About the Project

July 2, 2015
Carnegie Corporation of New York

Carnegie Corporation of New York hired Blue Chalk to produce a short film about an immigrant family with experiences emblematic of many new to the United States. The resulting “Pride of America” profiles Claudius Zorokong, a 30-year-old native of Sierra Leone who recently graduated from Hamilton College and began working on Capitol Hill as an assistant to Congresswoman Niki Tsongas.

The film is part of a campaign released on July 4 weekend 2015 to celebrate the contributions immigrants make to the U.S. The campaign included print ads and video placements in major news outlets and social media.
