Terry Golway
Tammany, Progressivism & the New York Irish
with Aedin Moloney, Sean Gormley and John Keating 

Tuesday, March 18 | 7:30 pm

“Terry Golway's Machine Made…is a fine…history of Tammany Hall, told with style and verve and with a keen eye for the Irish contribution to American politics.” — John Kelly, author of The Graves Are Walking and The Great Mortality

A multi-media evening of storytelling that conjures a surprising new history of New York’s most famous political machine.

Actors John Keating (The Weir and Ladies and Gents), Sean Gormley (The WeirandTransport) and Aedin Moloney (Dancing at Lughansa) join Kean University professor, historian, author, and journalist Terry Golway to celebrate a compelling new analysis of Tammany Hall. Bringing to life the voices of Walt Whitman, Harry Boland, Frances Perkins, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, John Kelly, and more – the cast will show Tammany’s Irish connections, its advocacy for immigrants, its implementation of the social welfare system, and the path to political power of Irish New Yorkers in the 19th and 20th centuries.

Terry Golway was a journalist for thirty years, writing for the New York Observer, The New York Times, and other venues. He is the author of many articles and books including Irish Rebel: John Devoy & America's Fight for Irish Freedom and For the Cause of Liberty: A Thousand Years of Ireland's Heroes. He holds a PhD in American history from Rutgers University and is currently the director of the Kean University Center for History, Politics, and Policy in New Jersey.
