FRANK Talks for Teens: What is Patriotism?
Patriotism has been defined as loyalty to or defense of one’s country. What do political leaders and social activists mean when they use the term “patriot”? What is the difference between patriotism and nationalism? Throughout history people have demonstrated patriotism through military service, government service, protests, marches, sit-ins and more. How is patriotism expressed now? Recently we have seen peaceful marches and violent clashes described simultaneously as “acts of terrorism” and “patriotic.” Join us for an in-depth conversation about the history of patriotism in the U.S. and what it means today.
The purpose of FRANK Talks is to encourage participants to weigh facts, provide the opportunity to put them in context, and consider different points of view. FRANK Talks inspire people to practice the skills of citizenship—to listen respectfully and engage thoughtfully on issues that affect our communities.
Frank Talks are provided by the Arizona Humanities and the Arizona State Library, Archives & Public Records.
