Articulating a unifying story of American civic nationalism: Supporting the work of Colin Woodard at Pell Center’s Nationhood Lab
By David E. Shaw
In October 2022, our Freeport Speech program welcomed best-selling author and historian Colin Woodard for a presentation entitled How to Save Our Democracy. I introduced Colin to an enthusiastic audience in Freeport, Maine and launched an evening discussion about opportunities to better understand and overcome the divisiveness that plagues so much of American public life.

Colin’s work addresses issues of enormous importance in America. Beyond being a sponsor of Colin’s appearance at Freeport Speech, I am supporting and advising his work at Pell Center’s Nationhood Lab to articulate a story of America’s national identity that helps bind the union together in the 21st century.
