Oct. 3 – Ferndale Library Hosting Virtual Discussion about American Creed

Saturday, October 3, 2020 at 2 PM – 3:15 PM

Public · Hosted by Ferndale Area District Library

Online Event

The Ferndale Library will be hosting a virtual (ZOOM) discussion of the PBS documentary American Creed on Saturday, October 3, moderated by history professor and humanities scholar Gregory Sumner, Ph.D., of U-D Mercy.

Please watch the 1-hour film before attending: https://www.pbs.org/video/american-creed-ikwuqf/

The film explores questions like: Who are we? Is there a useful “Unum” to be salvaged from our increasingly fractious “Pluribus?” Where are we headed as individual citizens and as a people?

Sumner will talk about ways in which we can constructively explore America’s ideals and identity. In American Creed, former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy come together from different points of view for a spirited investigation of the idea of a unifying American creed. Their inquiry frames stories of citizen-activists seeking to realize their own visions of America’s promise across divides.
