Abstract
The 2016 election forced us to reckon with who we are and who we want to be. We have been invested in a set of beliefs about our American identity: our exceptionalism, the inevitable rightness of our path, and the promise that hard work and determination will carry us to freedom. Mychal Denzel Smith confronts the shortcomings of these stories, and with the American Dream itself, and calls on us to live up to the principles we profess but fail to realize.
