New Ulm Public Library, in partnership with New Ulm Community Education and Community and Seniors Together Learning (CASTLE), is hosting a screening of the PBS documentary “American Creed” on Thursday, January 16 at 1:30 p.m. In the documentary film “American Creed” 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. Following the screening of the film Dr. Timothy Grundmeier, professor of History at Martin Luther College, will lead a Community Conversation about the idea of a unifying American creed and what it means to be an American today. This program is free and open to the public. Call New Ulm Public Library at 507-359-8331 for more information. “American Creed” is a co-production of Citizen Film and WTTW Chicago and is made possible by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting as part of American Graduate: Let’s Make It Happen. American Creed Community Conversations are supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, in partnership with the American Library Association, Citizen Film, Facing History and Ourselves, and the National Writing Project.
