The Greek Americans II: Passing the Torch
A sequel to the 1998 documentary "The Greek Americans." The program explores how modern Greek-Americans fan the flame of their cultural identity. The program celebrates the ways in which second and third-generation Greek Americans build upon the legacy established by their parents and grandparents, forging a future for Hellenism by sending their children to Greek-language school; socializing at YAL (Young Adult League, a ministry of the Orthodox Church for people aged 18-35) and AHEPA (American Hellenic Educational Progressive Association) events; and making their Greek heritage a priority and the focal point of family life. Celebrities, educators, community and business leaders share their personal stories.
