Give Me Your Tired.. : Poem, 135 years old, Makes Waves
Panel Discussion and Poetry Reading featuring Esther Schor, Murad Awawdeh, Christina Greer, and Amy King.

Emma Lazaruss sonnet, The New Colossus, is perhaps this countrys most famous poem, and recent immigration policies and controversies have thrust both statue and poem into the headlines, from Stephen Millers press conference to recent Independence Day protests. Esther Schor, Princeton Professor of English and author of Emma Lazarus, analyzes the recent wave of media attention. To what extent is the Statue of Liberty under fire, and to what extent is she inspiring poetry and actions that uphold her ideals? A panel of respondents include: Murad Awawdeh, Director of Political Engagement at the New York Immigration Coalition, Christina Greer, political scientist, commentator and author of Black Ethnics: Race, Immigration and the Pursuit of the American Dream, Amy King, poet and co-curator of the Guardians Huddled Masses feature.

AJHS is home to the Emma Lazarus Papers, famously including a handwritten version of Lazarus The New Colossus.
