Not only did Americans celebrate their own independence on the Fourth of July each year with fireworks and music, and parades. As late as the middle of the twentieth century, the independence of other national states, from Greece to India, Ethiopia and Algeria, was widely regarded as an expression of historical justice and redemption.

The Power and Limits of Narrative in Opposing Injustice
Literature, film, and other forums for bearing witness to injustice can create space for voices that have been silenced. They can lead to the recognition of people subjected to human rights violations. As such, narratives of witness have the power to connect people across divisions of nation, culture, and experience. They may contribute to shared national and even transnational identities.
