Answer to the question:
d. New Orleans! (The Black Hand started in New York City).
Here is a link to YouTube and a brand new documentary called The Italian Americans. It recently was shown on PBS stations, but luckily the entire two part film is on YouTube--and in HD too! Lisa and I started watching it last night and learned things we never knew before about the first Italians that came to America, and the reasons behind their decision to leave their home and families. The vintage photos and films included are amazingly detailed. We found ourselves pausing lots of scenes just to examine the little details (for instance, on the streets of NY). If you are Italian American, take the time to watch. If you have TIVO, an Xbox or a smart TV that can access YouTube, it would make watching it in the comfort of your living room very easy. Just do a YouTube search for The Italian Americans. It's the second one on the list, the duration over 3 hours long.
As a teaser, here's a question about a dark part of the history of Italian Americans:
Where did the Mafia first appear?
a. San Francisco
