Virtual Tenement Talk

Livestreamed Tenement Talk – “Immigration Will Destroy Us”: Understanding Xenophobia Past and Present


When: Tuesday, October 11, 2022, 6:30 - 7:30 pm ET

Event Location: YouTube Live

Cost: Suggested Donation

Join Define American, the Tenement Museum, and the Immigration History Research Center on a special virtual Tenement Talk on Youtube Live for a critical conversation on understanding anti-immigrant ideas, past and present. Through new research from Define American, examining the anti-immigration content network on YouTube, we’ll examine the myths and media of anti-immigrant messaging. How do today’s trends compare to the past? Why does this matter, and what can be done? Shauna Siggelkow, Director of Digital Storytelling at Define American will share their newest report, with context and discussion from historian Dr. Erika Lee, author of America for Americans, and Kathryn Lloyd, Vice President of Programs and Interpretation at the Tenement Museum.
