Davy Brown Discovers His Roots

By Keely Alexander and Velani Mynhardt

The American Immigration Council partnered with authors Velani Mynhardt Witthöft and Keely Alexander of Keely Velani LLC and created Davy Brown Discovers His Roots. The colorfully illustrated book tells the story of a young boy and his friends as they discover that everybody has an immigration story, whether their families arrived today or generations ago. The story, which is aimed toward 7-12 year olds, is a great way to introduce the concept of the many ways people come to the United States permanently and temporarily. It is a perfect conversation starter for a family discovering their roots or for a classroom teacher starting a unit on immigration.

American Victory

By Henry Cejudo

Henry Cejudo's remarkable journey follows an unlikely hero, the son of un-documented immigrants, from the mean streets of South Central L.A. to the glory of the Beijing Olympics. The youngest American to ever win a gold medal in the freestyle wrestling event, Henry's grit, passion, and resolve on display in China was a culmination of a life spent fighting-both on and off the mat.

American Victory is Henry's poignant and powerful memoir of rising above the statistics and the dangers to be a winner, a hero who embodies the American Dream.
