Lazarus and Liberty

Core faculty and long-time friend and supporter of the Global Citizenship Alliance, Peter Rose, published an article in the Massachusetts Review in response to the recent discussions about Emma Lazarus' poem "The New Colossus" hanging on a bronze plaque inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty. In Peter's words, "To say that Lazarus would be appalled at the mockery made of her sonnet—and, implicitly, of all those who found her words encouraging—by Donald Trump’s Acting Commissioner of Immigration, Ken Cuccinelli, would be an understatement. Like her sonnet, Emma Lazarus was herself a Colossus, a true American giant in comparison to the xenophobic Lilliputians in today’s Washington." massreview
