Overview

The American dream of equal opportunity and social mobility still holds a powerful appeal for the many immigrants who arrive in this country each year. But if immigrant success stories symbolize the fulfillment of the American dream, the persistent inequality suffered by native-born African Americans demonstrates the dream's limits.
