American Creed Community Conversation Student Event

American Creed Student Event

In turbulent times, what ideals do we all share?

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.

American Creed Community Conversation Student Event

Join us for a special conversation with entrepreneur Terrence Davenport and Marine Corps veteran Tegan Griffith, both featured in the documentary film American Creed. Following a selection of clips from American Creed, they will engage Facing History students in a dialogue about freedom, fairness, opportunity and the meaning of citizenship.

This event is free. Space is limited and RSVP is required. 
If you are interested in bringing your students to this event, please contact Pam Neides at [email protected] or 216-321-9220 x228.

The launch of American Creed, a PBS special co-produced by Citizen Film and WTTW, is catalyzing a robust national public engagement campaign made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB). A national series of community and school-based conversations with public media stations around the country and with Facing History and Ourselves’ national network of students and teachers supported by The Allstate Foundation, will provide students and the community opportunities to engage with the idea of a unifying national identity based on shared ideals.
