As an immigrant from the Democratic Republic of Congo, Elie Ngandu contrasts the immigrant perception of the United States as a land of opportunity to the perception, held by many disadvantaged Americans, of its being land of inequity, lacking avenues to move out of poverty. Elie acknowledges sympathy for Americans who come from a line of long-oppressed forebearers. He believes the U.S. is becoming the land it has long claimed to be, where people, no matter what background, can become successful through education and hard work. (Seth Mendelowitz)
