URHP READS – How the Irish Became White

September 20 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

How the Irish Became White by Noel Ignatiev Ignatiev traces the tattered history of Irish and African-American relations, revealing how the Irish used labor unions, the Catholic Church and the Democratic party to help gain and secure their newly found place in the White Republic. He uncovers the roots of conflict between Irish-Americans & African-Americans & draws a powerful connection between the embracing of white supremacy & Irish “success” in 19th century American society.

Chapters 4 will be under discussion.

Please note that URHP Reads is being held on the third Friday in September, rather than the usual second Friday in the month.
