Four Centuries of Citizen Struggle: How Grassroots Movements Have Grown in New York

The First Discussion at the Puffin Foundation Gallery at the Museum of the City of New York.

A discussion exploring the events and cultural conditions that have made our city fertile ground for activism-- left, right, and center.

Ever since 17th-century settlers in the Dutch colony of New Netherland went over the head of Director-General Petrus Stuyvesant to demand religious freedom for Quakers, New Yorkers have engaged in grassroots movements that have changed the course of history in the city. Join us to explore the forces and the social, political, and cultural conditions that have made our city fertile ground for activism--left, right, and center-- with historians Johanna Fernandez, Baruch College of the City University of New York; Timothy Patrick McCarthy, Harvard University; and Sam Tanenhaus, editor of the New York Times Book Review. Clarence Taylor of Baruch College will moderate the discussion.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Activist New York
