A new series implementing here at The Great Unlearn that I am naming "Critical Lens". This week we are pouring to the critical points that have been highlighted by various communities (BIPOC, academics, theatre world) to get a lens into the very real ways Hamilton the musical has many harmful nuances that gets erased by the American commercial fanfare.
Attached below you will find a collection of several articles that I encourage you to read through (many of them have links to even more critical writings).
I recently made a social media series of comparisons between the lyrics of the Hamilton musical. It wasn't a promotion or paid partnership but simply a teaching tool that I hope you'll use to be more critical in the world -- along with this one here.
