Break it Up with Richard KreitnerJun 14, 2023
"One Nation, Under God." But, are we? We may say we are one nation, united, but there have always been ideas, events, and people who have challenged that notion of unity, even back at the very start of the nation’s founding. Sharon talks with author of the book Break It Up, about the theme of division throughout American history.
