2017 American Heritage Awards

Posted By Terence Delaine Jr, Monday, June 19, 2017

The American Immigration Council, a powerful voice in honoring our proud history as a nation of immigrants, is hosting the American Heritage Awards in New Orleans on Friday, June 23. The American Heritage Awards is their annual gala where they celebrate the talents, contributions, and accomplishments of notable immigrants with a fun night of cocktails, entertainment, and dinner. This year they will be honoring Franco Alessandrini, and Andrei Codrescu.


Franco Alessandrini for his incredible accomplishments as a world-renowned Italian-American immigrant painter and sculptor. Mr. Alessandrini’s works are in private and public collections throughout the United States, Europe and South America, including the Monument to the Immigrants, displayed in Woldenberg Park on the Riverfront in New Orleans.


Andrei Codrescu is a Jewish, Romanian-American, homme-de-lettres who became nationally recognized through his many years of thoughtful commentary on National Public Radio. Condrescu was raised in anti-Semitic, Communist Romania. He escaped as a young man to Israel, and then landed in the United States in the late 1960s. Codrescu was the Mac Curdy Distinguished Professor of English at Louisiana State University from 1984 until his retirement in 2009 and still considers New Orleans his “home turf.


The AIC currently offering $50 off their ticket price for nonprofit members, so don’t miss out! Tickets are available here.
