Up From the Ashes: The Italian Americans
On April 18th, 1906, an earthquake nearly destroys San Francisco’s Little Italy. This 8-minute clip explores the story of Italian-Americans rebuilding their community with the help of Amadeo Giannini’s Bank of Italy, a resource they’d long been denied by American banks. Educators might use the film to explore the resilience of immigrant communities in the face of hardship and discrimination.
