Hip-Hop Hamilton & The Founding Fathers
Join us for a informative illustrated lecture by Stephen Spignesi's,based on his book Hip-Hop Hamilton & The Founding Fathers. For this talk, Spignesi begins with the three Founding documents of America—the Declaration of Independence, the Acts of Confederation, and the Constitution—and then discusses what might be called the "Top 10" Founders: Washington, Jefferson, Franklin, Adams, Paine, Hamilton, etc. The talk includes all kinds of fascinating historical facts and trivia about each Founder, and is accompanied by a slideshow of related images; e.g., Washington's tomb, Monticello, "Common Sense," etc.
Don't miss our Hamilton theme events all month long.
