What does it mean to be American?
What holds us together in turbulent times?
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy come together from remarkably different backgrounds, life experiences and points of view to explore the idea of a unifying American creed. Their spirited inquiry frames the stories of a range of citizen-activists striving to realize their own visions of America’s promise across deep divides.
American Creed launches as a nationally televised PBS Special Feb. 27, and as a feature documentary on PBS.org Feb. 28, 2018. These dates mark the beginning of a robust public engagement campaign including community conversations, classroom activities and local storytelling in cities and towns across the country — all designed to foster a bold national conversation about American ideals and identity.
