What Every American Should Know, an initiative of the Aspen Institute’s Citizenship and American Identity Program, is a nonpartisan exploration of the elements of cultural and civic social literacy for our increasingly diverse nation. We are crowdsourcing ideas from a wide range of Americans by asking the following question: What are 10 terms or references that you think every American should know? We are inviting submissions in the form of top 10 lists, which then automatically aggregate into a national list of what every American should know.
