Hull House Museum – UIC
Beginning with the mass migration from the shores of southern Europe, over a century ago, a unique phenomenon in American culture began to unfold…the psychological genocide of a people. Media induced; this holocaust vilified Italian Americans in a manner unprecedented. Today, another medium, the Hull House Museum, mandated by the U of I Trustees, for the benefit of scholars, historians and the public alike, has chosen to manipulate history by disengaging Chicago’s Italian American immigrants from their rightful place in the legacy of Jane Addams and the Hull House phenomenon.
If we do not act now, the following will be our epitaph: “…and it came to pass that, for those who follow us, it will be as if we never were.”
