Author and educator David Bobb talked about his new book, Humility: An Unlikely Biography of America’s Greatest Virtue, in which discusses humility through the life stories of five prominent Americans. These are George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass, James Madison, and Abigail Adams. He said that the people he profiled in his book demonstrated that greatness and humility are not mutually exclusive. Bobb also argued that in our current political age, America has discarded the vision of the founders and must rediscover humility in order to assure an American future. In addition, he spoke about his motivations for writing the book and about his childhood growing up in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota. close
