      American Tapestry: We Tell Ourselves Stories, Part II: Freedom’s Story at Home and Abroad

      What is the “Story of America”? Is there such a thing? Is there only one story, or are there many stories? In this second part of “American Tapestry: We Tell Ourselves Stories,” Dr. Roth continues his exploration of the post-1968 shattering of the American story by tracing the story of American Freedom: the many ways it has been defined, who it included and who it excluded; what it means to be “as a City Upon a Hill”; Manifest Destiny; and how it came to be that Americans thought (think?) it is their moral duty to make the world safe for democracy, to be evangelists for democracy, freedom, and liberty – the story of American Freedom at home and abroad! Note: While this lecture builds on Roth’s “1968 in America Series” and Part I of “American Tapestry,” it is a self-contained talk that requires no previous attendance. – Andy Roth, Ph.D.
