Emma's Sitting Room

Emma's Sitting Room

This exhibit situates the genesis of the New Colossus poem in a brownstone sitting room, where the author, Emma Lazarus, immersed herself in the debates and literature of the day. Read and discuss Emma’s words and immerse yourself in the issues of the time.

This Exhibition has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor
