Wordless Wednesday: When Tea Party Meant Something Else

There’s a lot of history around the Fourth of July including¬† a Tea Party that had a very different meaning from what it does today. The story of ragtag American colonists overthrowing the most powerful empire the world had known was a plot out of the best Hollywood would come to offer. But it did happen, complete with cinematic river crossings and imbedded love stories. And it is now our story, the story of a country begun by religious dissenters and international working class immigrants. Since my field is Postcolonial Studies, I’m glad things went the way they did. And we have a day to commemorate with friends, family, fireworks and of course, grilled meat.

I hope we can use the 4th to remember what brings us together, rather than what keeps us apart.

Celebrating the Fourth of July with Fun

    Thank you for ending your post with a great photo – one that speaks to one’s sense of humanity and compassion. I live in Obama’s neighborhood, and our 4th of July parade is one of the great national testaments to diversity.

    I have nominated you for the Liebster Blog Award! Congratulations!

    Thanks so much Keeesha. It is nice to see more and more diversity confirmed in the public arena. Makes me feel better as the parent of a multicultural kid.
    And thanks for the nomination for the Libester Blog Award. Such a great compliment.
