American Creed: Community Conversation

American Creed: Community Conversation

Presented by ideastream at The Idea Center | Playhouse Square

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

Join us for a Community Conversation featuring entrepreneur Terrence Davenport and Marine Corps veteran Tegan Griffith, both featured in the documentary film American Creed. Following a screening of American Creed they will host a Q&A, engaging Cleveland community members in a dialogue about freedom, fairness, opportunity and the meaning of citizenship.

In the documentary film American Creed, former U.S. 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 explore American ideals and identity. 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.

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.

As a partner of this event, your contact information will be shared with Facing History and Ourselves. By providing your information you consent to receive future email updates from Facing History. You can opt out from these communications at any time.

Co-produced by: WTTW & Citizen Film. Sr. Executive Producer: Randy Bean. Executive Producer: Dan Soles.

Facing History and Ourselves reaches millions of students worldwide every year. Using the lessons of history—and history in the making—Facing History equips teachers to help students confront prejudice, racism, and antisemitism, empowering them to become adults who change the world for the better.
