Exhibit Opening: “A Neglected Legacy”

Exhibit Opening: A Neglected Legacy: Reclaiming a Radical Past
Join us as we celebrate the opening of an exhibit that examines one family’s involvement in the radical labor movement of the early 20th century and how WPA stock photographs concealed the truth about their anarchist beliefs.  In a lecture by Professor Michele Fazio, she will discuss the recent discovery of these government photographs and how they were used to promote the Italian immigrant experience in an attempt to answer the question: What is lost and gained in the process of cultural assimilation?
