“Borders and Immigrants” is the first of a series of themed tours of the Eugene V. Debs Museum.
This tour explores how immigration shaped Debs’ life and work, from his French immigrant parents, to his dynamic stances on immigration policy, to immigrants’ myriad contributions to the labor movement and the Socialist Party. Tour participants will also grapple with the complicated role of national borders in Debs’ era and today.
If you’ve already toured the Debs Museum, this is an opportunity to revisit the home and collection from a new perspective. First-time visitors will also find a valuable introduction to Debs through the lenses of immigration.
All are welcome. Please direct any questions to Allison Duerk by calling (812) 232-2163.
