The Duality of America: Reality and Hope

“My 50 states: Finding an America Worth Loving” — Eli Emery’s talk will focus on finding an authentic American dream and a true sense of pride in the “American experiment.” As a student of politics, Eli says, he has long noticed a sense of apathy or anger surrounding recent developments in the United States, a sense that has caused some to reject the American Dream in its entirety. He argues for the opposite tendency: an enlightened patriotism that highlights and celebrates the diversity of America’s people, and the possibility of its future.
