Talking US national identity and Union on America’s Public Forum panel Nov 1

This coming Sunday, November 1, I’ll be joining a virtual panel to discuss “The Search for a Shared American Narrative,” which in its original 19th century guise, is the topic of my latest book, Union: The Struggle to Forge the Story of United States Nationhood

Fellow panelists are Damon Linker, columnist at The Week; James White, Chairman of the North Carolina Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Commission; and David Blankenhorn, President of Braver Angels, a civic non-profit that seeks to depolarize the country.

The panel, which kicks off at 7pm Eastern, is part of the America’s Public Forum series on American national identity in the 21st Century and is convened by the Indiana-based Harrison Center, Sagamore Institute, and Braver Angels, as well as the National Institute for Civil Discourse and moderated by Alexandra Hudson, a scholar in residence at Harrison, an arts-as-development organization in Indianapolis.

It’s free and open to the public, but as with most virtual events, you need to pre-register.
