About:

The United States has people with backgrounds so different they frequently did not know one another's language. What happens to make us all "American"? This process was once called a "melting pot" and later a "mosaic," a "quilt," and a "gumbo." Each of these terms has political and policy implications -- in our past and now. Our presentation will look at some of the processes involved in becoming American, how best to describe them and what difference they make. Expect a few Cleveland examples! Come with your questions and expect some discussion.

Our speaker is the noted historian, Dr John Grabowski. He is well-known in Cleveland and beyond for his work on local history and he holds a joint appointment with the Department of History at CWRU and the Western Reserve Historical Society, where he serves as an Historian and Senior VP for Research and Publications. He is the editor of David Van Tassel's The Encyclopedia of Cleveland History and the author of Sports in Cleveland: An Illustrated History.
