We the People…wait, which people? – K

September 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

We’ve all heard those first three words of the preamble of the Constitution. But what does that mean? And can “We the people” mean different things at different times to different people? This complex topic can best be explored through historical moments and events. From sharecropping to immigration, participants can consider the concept of the changing meaning of citizenship and have an engaging and important dialogue about immigration today and the impact of the policies that affect us all.

Join us in a special discussion on this topic from Dr. Christopher Fisher, Associate Professor of History at The College of New Jersey, as we examine the history that continues to shape our present day.
