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.

    Join award-winning sports journalist Evan Weiner, for this in-depth look at how the media – especially television – came into its own in the 1960s. From the first of the Kennedy-Nixon debates in 1960, to the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, and the scathing assessment of Vietnam by Walter Cronkite, Weiner explores how the media matured. You’ll learn how Edward R. Murrow and Senator Joseph McCarthy laid the groundwork. The foundation for the media we have today can be traced to these events and these important figures.
