Black Powder, White Lace: The du Pont Irish and Cultural Identity in Nineteenth-Century America
Twenty years ago, Margaret Mulrooney's history of the community of Irish immigrant workers at the du Pont powder yards, Black Powder, White Lace, was published to wide acclaim. Now a new edition of the book is being published to remind readers of the rich materials available on the du Pont workers, and of Mulrooney's powerful conclusions about immigrant communities in America.
Author Margaret Mulrooney will be giving an Author Talk on the book on Thursday, March 9, here at Hagley. Tickets and additional information are available here.
