- Portuguese Pilgrims of New England
- Program Description
Portuguese Americans comprise a large and ever growing segment of the population of Massachusetts. A plane from the Azore Islands arrives three times a week in Boston, bringing new immigrants to join their families, many of whom live in Cambridge, Somerville, New Bedford, and Fall River. Because of this constant influx, there exists three generations of Portuguese people, each contributing a rich a varied culture and heritage to Massachusetts. Through personal glimpses of the generations of Portuguese immigrants, this program explores their contributions through their history, music, dance, work and religion.
