From Washington, D.C., to countless communities across the country, ideological and regional divisions have made the modern United States feel more like a splintered, politically sectionarian nation. For centuries, the union’s strength and resilience have been tested: North versus South, red versus blue, rural versus urban. Author Margaret Renkl opens a window into the complex, oft-misunderstood American South, sharing her own experience, insight, and reasons for hope.
Margaret Renkl is a contributing opinion writer for the New York Times and the author of Graceland, At Last: Notes on Hope and Heartache from the American South, winner of the 2022 PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay. Peter Catapano is an editor of the New York Times Opinion section.
A program of the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Institute for New York City History, Politics, and Community Activism at the New-York Historical Society, created and supported by the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Foundation
