Baxter Lecture Series: Trump’s anti-immigration playbook was written 100 years ago in Boston

Neil Swidey, a staff writer for the Boston Globe Magazine, will discuss the uncanny connections between the Trump administration’s anti-immigration rhetoric and the playbook crafted a century ago by a small group of Harvard-educated Boston Brahmin. Swidey explored these connections, and their implications, in his Globe Magazine cover story earlier this year. This program is sponsored by the Boston Public Library’s Baxter Fund, promoting programs that will promote the commemorative and public understanding of the history of the settlement of and immigration to New England.
