Indigo Cultural Center and Arizona PBS are partnering up to host a special screening of highlights from “American Creed,” a new documentary exploring what it means to be American and whether a unifying set of beliefs – an American creed – can prove more powerful than the issues that divide us.
The screening will take place at the Film Bar in downtown Phoenix on Tuesday, April 24th from 5:30-7:30pm. Pre-screening community networking with hors d’oeuvres will be hosted in the lobby of the Film Bar. Wine and beer will be available for purchase. The screening will include an audience discussion moderated by nationally recognized early childhood equity consultant, Dr. Eva Marie Shivers, director of Indigo Cultural Center.
The American Creed documentary examines the American ideals of freedom, fairness, equality and opportunity. It features former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy, acclaimed novelist Junot Diaz, Marine Sgt. Tegan Griffith and baseball manager Joe Maddon, among others. The stories in “American Creed” are told from the points of view of unlikely activists who creatively bridge cultural, economic and/or political divides.
American Creed launched as a nationally televised PBS Special, and as a feature documentary on PBS.org, beginning 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.
