By Cynthia MacGregor

Give Me Your Tired, Your Poor

Come along on a journey to the late 1800s, a time when America was the haven sought by many who had been born overseas and were living in poverty, or under oppressive governments, or both. As these refugees and other immigrants reached our shores, they inspired our friends in France to send us a statue commemorating the immigrants’ arrival. They also inspired a poet named Emma Lazarus to write a poem about the welcome America gave them, a poem that is engraved on the pedestal on which stands the Statue of Liberty.

Learn about that time in our history, about the gift of the statue, about the writing of the poem, and about the woman who wrote the poem. Celebrate the Statue of Liberty and what it means to all Americans, newly arrived or otherwise.
