America’s greatest challenge has always been living up to the soaring pledge of the Declaration of Independence. When America falls short on this sacred promise of equality, it undermines our national motto e pluribus unum. This July 4th, a pluribus of contributors—black, white, gay, Christian, Muslim, and Jewish Americans, natural-born, naturalized, liberal, libertarian, and conservative—reflect on how a renewed commitment to equality, rightly understood, is the basis for national unity.
