[In honor of the official March 15th release of Of Thee I Sing, a series on exemplary American critical patriots. Leading up to a weekend update on the many ways I’ve been able to share the book over the last few months, and my request for opportunities to keep doing so!]
I’ve written about critical patriotism a good bit over the last year, including for both the History News Network (HNN) and the United States Intellectual History (USIH) blog. But I would say that I expressed both my vision of the concept and my case for its vital importance most clearly in this January 2020 Saturday Evening Post Considering History column on Martin Luther King Jr., James Baldwin, Colin Kaepernick, the 1619 Project, and more!
Special post this weekend,
PS. What do you think? Other examples or forms of patriotism you’d highlight?
