Patriotism: A Love Story
Journal of Black Masculinities (2009)
  • Toby S Jenkins, George Mason University

In this article, the author offers a critical examination of the concept of patriotism from the perspective of the college experience. Drawing on examples from popular culture and current campus events, the essay advances the belief that organizational critique and social activism should be embraced as strong examples of patriotism and commitment whether on campus, in a company, or in society at large. The development of conscious, critical thinkers and committed moral agents of change is an important goal of the higher education institution.
