Sarah Churchwell: American Dream
Aye Write: Join Sarah Churchwell at Glasgow Royal Concert Hall as she discusses the ‘American Dream’ and ‘America First’.
About Sarah Churchwell: American Dream
Sorry, but this event has been and gone!
The ‘American Dream’ and ‘America First’ are two of the most loaded phrases in America.
The American Dream began as a pledge for equality rather than as a dream of ‘making it big’. America First has not just served as an isolationist term, but as an early slogan of the Ku Klux Klan (KKK) with surprising links to the present.
In 1927, a KKK riot led to the arrest of seven men – among them a certain Fred C. Trump. In Behold, America Sarah Churchwell argues that the meanings and history of these terms need to be understood afresh so that the true spirit of America can be reclaimed.
