The San Francisco Wave Organ remains one of the Bay Area's most unknown, misunderstood and yet beloved landmarks. After listening, I hope you'll want to take a trip to visit this piece of acoustic architecture yourself.

Imagine 2050 Podcast - November 2008

From Noah Chandler | Part of the Imagine 2050 Podcast series | 09:49

This month we are in San Francisco, California exploring what it means to be American through those involved in the struggle for same-sex marriage rights.

By 2050, one out of five Americans will be foreign born. Latino communities will triple in size and the percentage of Asian communities will increase significantly. There will be no clear racial or ethnic majority. Only 47% of Americans will be classified as white.

The American population will drastically shift. New faces, new foods, new languages, and different skin colors will influence our everyday experiences. What appears ‘foreign’ will challenge how Americans see the world and how Americans identify themselves.

As the demographics of the United States shift over the next 40 years, candid conversations around race, immigration, and identity will become increasingly necessary to American democracy.

This month we are on the streets in San Francisco, California as we look at what it means to be American within the context of the struggle for same-sex marriage rights.

This audio blog is only one voice among many contributors interested in developing the above questions and issues.
