History Professor to Look at Anti-Immigration Waves in U.S. Past
Anti-immigration, or nativism, in the United States will be explored in a lecture, “Nativism in the Northeast: A Historic Look,” Thursday, Nov. 9, at 7 p.m. in Krinovitz Recital Hall, Hawkins Hall.
Dr. Mark Richard, professor of history, will discuss the roots of some prejudices that are finding expression in contemporary society. He’ll also look at the 1926 Thanksgiving Day cross burning by the Ku Klux Klan in Plattsburgh, which exemplified the nativism of the 1920s.
