America is known the world over as the great melting pot for a reason. It’s because America and its rich history aren’t just about one group of people. Our nation owes many things about its culture and unique flavor to the influence of multiple marginalized social groups. These groups include but are not limited to women, African Americans, Hispanics, and Italian immigrants.
