Revolutionary or Activist? That is our Question.
Dr. Holton is the McCausland Professor of History at the University of South Carolina. His scholarship in early American history examines the forces and motivations that compel citizens and governments to action.
In this episode we touch on all kinds of topics: The 1619 Project, memorial statues of slave owning founders, economic motivations, the role of the activist in bringing about change, teaching American history – and of course ways to storm out of dinner.
Dr. Holton is as engaging as he is knowledgeable I am very sure you will enjoy this discussion.
