TOP OF THE WEEK:
With this issue, NEWSWEEK marks our nation's 200th birthday in a special way. Much of the
journalism about the Bicentennial thus far has been either periwig retrospective or 2001-style
futurology. What seemed to be neglected was a close-up look at America as it actually is at this
moment in its history -- a group portrait of our people unadorned by rhetoric or ideology.
It is just such a portrait that NEWSWEEK presents in the pages that follow: the voices of 46
Amercans from every part of our society talking about their lives, their work, their hopes, their
concerns and their country. In these pages, you will meet the Secretary of State and a legless
Vietnam veteran. A Nobel scientist and a Boston housewife. Martin Luther King's father, Jimmy
Carter's mother and President Ford's son. A chicano grape picker and the head of General Motors. An
opera star, a novelist, a poet and a sculptor. A grocer from Kokomo and a CB-radio tycoon from
California. A 21-year-old murderer on Death Row and a 16-year-old high-school brain.
They remind us that America at 200 is an unfinished nation. Some of our people are poor or
aggrieved; many of them feel a loss of trust in the country's institutions, and even in one another.
But the striking and refreshing note they sound is positive. They are full of a look we've-come-
through current of confidence, an appreciation of American plenty and liberty, and an enduring faith
in the American future. "Just think of the things that's going to happen in the next 100 years," said
Mattie White, a prairie Texas woman who has just turned 100 herself. "Oh, I'd love to see it."
The idea for this special issue came from Senior Editor Peter Goldman, who directed the project.
Working from a list of more than 150 prospective interviewees, some prominent and some ordinary
citizens, 64 NEWSWEEK correspondents from Alaska to Puerto Rico conducted long tape-recorded
conversations with their subjects. The results were 145 completed interviews and more than a
quarter-million words of transcript. From these, Goldman selected ourAmerican chorus. Some
citizens offer no more than a brief but pointed anecdote; others tell riveting longer stories out of
their own lives. One, Robert Lowell, perhaps America's greatest living poet, contributes a
Bicentennial poem specially commissioned by NEWSWEEK.
To illustrate this special effort, the magazine presents two photo essays. One is a color portfolio of
Americans celebrating the Bicentennial, photographed primarily by staffer Wally McNamee on a
series of cross-country tours. The other, in black and white, is an evocation of a new America -- the
Sun Belt that stretches from California across the Southwest to Florida. It is the work of Bill
Owens, a young documentary photographer from California, whose collections include "Suburbia"
and "Our Kind of People"; he interrupted a Guggenheim fellowship for the assignment.
Here, then, is our America.
OUR AMERICA (the cover).
