Rescuing American History from Race Hustlers


Over the past several years, many activists and academics increasingly have advocated for a politicized view of American history relating to the experience of black Americans in contemporary society. According to the new radical orthodoxy, the United States was founded as a racist nation, and its history must be viewed through the lens of the systemic oppression of black people. Join AEI’s Ian Rowe for a conversation with a collection of prominent scholars who are pushing back against this orthodoxy. They will discuss a new volume by the Woodson Center’s 1776 Unites campaign, “Red, White, and Black: Rescuing American History from Revisionists and Race Hustlers” (Emancipation Books, 2021), which seeks to tell the true and complete story of black Americans, in all its complexity, diversity of experience, poignancy, and resilience.
