Author Talk: Ben Railton
In conjunction with our ongoing exhibit A Taste for the Exotic, explore two critical strands in American Studies: policy conversations on immigration and social and educational conversations on diversity and multiculturalism all using the Chinese Exclusion Act. As author Benjamin Railton, son of the late Art Railton who authored The History of Martha’s Vineyard, shows, a fresh look at the Act overturns much of the received wisdom on immigration and American identity.
