Director: ECTV recorded
Producer: ECTV recorded
Abstract: This Humanities Discussion event, "Removal and the Right to Remain in the United States" featured speaker Samantha Seeley and took place on Wednesday, May 18, 2022, at 5 pm in the Henkelman Room at the Albright Memorial Library in Scranton, PA, as a part of the "Scranton's Story, Our Nation's Story" project led by The University of Scranton with community partners. Samantha Seeley, Ph.D., is an Assistant Professor of History at the University of Richmond. Her book, Race, Removal, and the Right to Remain: Migration and the Making of the Early United States, highlights early efforts at U.S. nation building and the use of migration to construct a white republic. Situating the struggles of Native and Black Americans into the larger story of the early U.S, Seeley argues for a more inclusive way to tell the story of forced removal and its implications on early U.S. statehood. This event is a part of the "Scranton's Story, Our Nation's Story" project's third theme, Indigenous History of Northeastern Pennsylvania.
