Who Built America on Up With Chris Hayes

2012 September 24

This past weekend on Up w/ Chris Hayes, panelist and author Thomas Frank closed the segment by tying the the American Social History Project’s flagship textbook to the current dialogue about economic equity and the 2012 election. The clip below [after the commercial].

“He said this is a choice election. It Certainly is, okay. What you are seeing — do you remember this textbook they used to assign in college called Who Built America? It was a history of labor. We are turning that understanding completely upside down. Who Built America? The people in lower Manhattan, finance capital. We are the moocher and looters.”

The full conversation transcript of the segment is available on the MSNBC website. 

Used in College classrooms then, and still now. For more information on Who Built America available from the ASHP website.
