MPR News Presents: The Thread Live with Eddie Glaude, Jr. hosted by Kerri MIller

Join Kerri Miller for a Thread Live event, “What It Means To Be An American.” Her guest, Eddie Glaude, Jr., is the author of “Democracy in Black” and a professor of religion and African American studies at Princeton University. A poll from March 2017 found 71% of American adults think the United States is losing its national identity and yet 65% said diversity makes the United States stronger. Kerri Miller and Glaude will dig into what we mean by “national identity,” the role diversity plays in that identity, and what it means to be an American during this divisive political time.
