American Creed NR (2018) 82 mins
In the documentary film, recognizing their social and political differences, Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy come together to explore the idea of a unifying American creed. Along with a range of citizen-activists, they each delve into their own family and community histories to explore urgent questions that are central to America’s success as a democracy, including how to provide access to educational and economic advancement; how to unify culturally diverse populations; and most important, how to define America’s national ideals.
This event includes a post-film discussion led by members of the library's Great Decisions group.
Free and open to all
