In the documentary American Creed, David M. Kennedy and Condoleezza Rice come together from different backgrounds and perspectives to ask, "What ideals do we share in common as a nation?"

American Creed film screenings accompanied by scholar-facilitated discussions on this question are being held in libraries, community centers, high schools and other civic spaces.
