Devra,

I believe you want to use the -legend(label(# "text"))- option.  Something like
this:

twoway (histogram weight if foreign==0, density blcolor(blue) bfcolor(none)
legend(label(1 "Domestic"))) ///
 (histogram weight if foreign==1, density blcolor(red) bfcolor(none)
legend(label(2 "Foreign")))

hope this helps,
Scott
