With Donald Trump’s presidency under way, the question of what it means to be American has never been so pertinent. The country is in the middle of a major demographic shift but how exactly is its population changing and what are the effects of these changes on the nation’s politics and identity?
This ground breaking series, presented by award-winning journalist Maria Hinojosa, is the first ever show to focus on the dramatic demographic shifts currently shaping the USA. Underreported stories reveal the human face of this epic population change and show how the new multicultural American mainstream influences everything from elections to culture and commerce. Behind every number, there’s a story.
