November 24, 2012: Crowd-sourced Thanks

[When things are tough, it’s that much more important to remember the best things, those for which we should say a big thanks. So for this week’s series, I’ve highlighted some American moments, figures, and texts for which I’m particularly thankful. This crowd-sourced post is drawn from the communal gratitude of a fellow AmericanStudier—but I know there’s more to share, so please add your thanks, thanks!]
On Twitter, Gavan Dtonic expresses his thanks for James  Baldwin’s essay “Many Thousands Gone.”
One more special thankful post tomorrow,
Ben
PS. So who and what are you thankful for?
11/24 Memory Day nominee: Junipero Serra, who was certainly more of a Columbus than a Las Casas, but who can also help us connect to the founding and defining cross-cultural histories of California and America.
