FILMMAKER SPOTLIGHT:
AMERICAN CREED


"American Creed"

  Friday, March 23 at 8:30 PM in the Sunset Room

       

Mary Hendra of Facing History and Ourselves and Stan Pesick of the National Writing Project will also be co-presenting a workshop to introduce activities associated with the PBS broadcast of "American Creed" on Sunday, March 25 at 8 AM.


In turbulent times, what ideals do we share in common?

In the documentary film American Creed, former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy come together from remarkably different life experiences, backgrounds and points of view to investigate the idea of a unifying American creed. Their spirited inquiry frames the stories of a wide range of citizen-activists striving to realize their own visions of America’s promise across deep divides.

After the film screening Facing History and Ourselves will moderate an audience dialogue around freedom, fairness, opportunity and the meaning of citizenship.
