[As this godawful year nears its close, we could all use some positivity. So for my annual series of wishes for the AmericanStudies Elves, I wanted to highlight hopeful figures, texts, histories, and stories we should all better remember in the new year. Leading up to a weekend post featuring a more personal hope!]
Six amazing Americans whose stories could inspire us all:
2) Yung Wing
3) Ida B. Wells
Next wish tomorrow,
PS. What do you think? Figures we should better remember?
