The Cost of Free Land: Discussion with Rebecca Clarren

  • Starts: 5:00 pm on Tuesday, March 19, 2024
  • Ends: 7:00 pm on Tuesday, March 19, 2024
Join award-winning journalist Rebecca Clarren as she shares archival photographs and stories about both her Jewish ancestors who homesteaded on the South Dakota prairie and her family’s Lakota neighbors. Clarren’s new book The Cost of Free Land: Jews, Lakota and an American Inheritance not only exposes the myriad ways the United States privileged white immigrants like her ancestors at great cost to Native Americans, it grapples with how we living in America today can respond to this history. This lecture will be followed by a Q&A and book signing. This hybrid event will take place on March 19 at 5:00 PM at BU Photonics Center (8 St. Mary’s Street, Boston), Room 906, and will also be live-streamed on Zoom. We hope to see you there.
