1:00pm-2:00 pm: The Irish in America with Ken Sorenson

As a country, we have dealt with immigration issues for all of our history. This is the story of the Irish immigration. The potato blight of the 1840s drove thousands here. Who were they? What have they become? Come and hear the history of those migrants and see how they have impacted our history and our culture. Come and see that migration and their impact on the movie industry, the sports world, politics, literature and many other areas.
