Talk on “We the People: The 500-Year Battle over Who is American” @ South Hall, Room 338, SUNY Geneseo
Nov 14 @ 7:00 pm

Please join us for a talk by Dr. Ben Railton, a professor of English from Fitchburg State University in Massachusetts, who is the author of We the People: The 500-Year Battle over Who is American (Rowan, 2019). This event is co-sponsored by American Studies and the History Department. Books will be available for purchase.

The Constitution begins with those deceptively simple words, but how do Americans define that “We”? In this talk based on his new book We the People, Ben Railton will argue that throughout our history two competing yet interconnected concepts have battled to define our national identity and community: exclusionary and inclusive visions of who gets to be an American. From the Revolutionary period’s debates on African American slavery to 20th-century controversies around Filipino Americans and Japanese internment and 21st-century fears of Muslim Americans (among many other eras and histories), time and again this defining battle has shaped our society and culture. Carefully exploring and critically examining those histories, and the key stories and figures they feature, is vital to understanding America—and to making sense of the Trump era, when the battle over who is an American can be found in every significant debate and moment.

American singer, songwriter, pianist, and 2019 Grammy Award nominee Victor Wainwright will be performing at The Geneseo Riviera November 16th. Wainwright continues to broaden his musical scope starting his career off in rock n’roll to what is now a mix of different scope of blues. This dynamic range of music has proven him as a world-renowned piano player and performer. Wainwright continues to be a soul-bearing, dynamic performer with progressive roots music.

“Wainwright serves as an electrifying guide to a good time-spinning tales, telling his listeners how to beat the blues, and meticulously conjuring raw soul and energy out of his acoustic piano. He displays a sharp sense of humor and a knack for storytelling… every track is brilliant.” -Living Blues Magazine

In 2017, Wainwright won BMA Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year. In both 2013 and 2014, Wainwright won the ‘Pinetop Perkins Piano Player of the Year’ at the Blues Music Award ceremonies. Also in 2013, his collaborative album, Easy Livin’, made the Top 10 in the US Billboard Top Blues Album chart.
