A GLOBAL CAFÉ “DIALOGUE IN DEMOCRACY” SERIES EVENT A STRUCTURED DIALOGUE "KNEELING AND THE NATIONAL ANTHEM: PATRIOTISM, POWER AND RACE " In the aftermath of players in the National Football League kneeling and locking arms in solidarity on the field during the playing of the national anthem before a game, we will explore the distinction between personal identity and American identity and between patriotism and nationalism. We will examine the connection between race and power and the roots of inherent structural racism in our society.
