American Creed: Community Conversations

American Creed: Community Conversations

Part one of the Community Conversation will be a viewing and discussion around the PBS documentary American Creed facilitated by Beth Adams of WXXI. In the documentary, former US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy come together from different points of view to investigate the idea of a unifying American creed. Their spirited inquiry frames the stories of citizen-activists striving to realize their own visions of America’s promise across deepening divides.

Part two of the Community Conversation will take place Wednesday, April 18th at 7p.m. Facilitated by Dr. Timothy Kneeland, chair of the history department at Nazareth College, a panel will further discuss the themes presented in the film. Panelists include:

  • Lomax Campbell - City of Rochester
  • Adam Chodak - WROC – TV
  • Kent Gardner - The Rochester Beacon.
  • Julie Philip - Democrat & Chronicle
  • Huber Van Tol - Pathstone
