Join us for a viewing of the PBS documentary American Creed featuring former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, historian David Kennedy and a diverse group of Americans exploring whether a unifying set of beliefs, an American creed, can prove more powerful than the issues that divide us.

 

 

This is the kickoff event for a five-program series running from March 2nd until August 17th.
