American Creed screening and community conversation at library

NEW ULM — The 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, Jan. 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.
