Dr. Richard Bell

Tune in on January 13 for a fascinating talk on Alexander Hamilton. Whether you’ve seen the award-winning musical Hamilton in New York City, or have tickets to its July 2022 presentation at the National Arts Centre in Ottawa, learn how the fictionalized history compares to actual events.

Thursday, January 13, 2022
7 to 8:30 p.m. (EST)

Join Dr. Richard Bell, a professor of American History at the University of Maryland, College Park, as he explores what the hip-hop sensation gets right, what it gets wrong, and why Alexander Hamilton still matters.

Dr. Tim Foran, Curator, British North America at the Canadian Museum of History, moderates the conversation during an evening filled with fact, fiction and music.

This event is presented in English with simultaneous French interpretation.
