Rochester's Rich History - Multicultural Rochester: Immigrants, Migrants, & Minorities in the Flower City - Emily Morry In-Person
This 1.1-mile walking tour focuses on the significant role that immigrants, migrants, and minority group members have played in the economic, social, and cultural development of Rochester. The tour begins at the former location of the largely immigrant-built Erie Canal, and ends at the Rundel Memorial Library, where locals and visitors alike can learn more about Rochester’s immigrant communities as well as their own ethnic and racial heritage using the resources available in the Local History & Genealogy Division.
Historian, author, and immigrant, Emily C. Morry was born in Ottawa, Canada and later moved to Montréal where she studied American history at McGill University. She earned her PhD at the University of Rochester, where she focused on African American history, urban studies, and popular culture. Her first book, Rochester Through Time, co-written with Mary Grenier, was published in 2016. She continues to research and write about local history as both a freelance writer and a proud employee of the Rochester Public Library.
