American Creed

ABOUT

ABOUT AMERICAN CREED

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy and former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice come together from different points of view to explore what it means to be American. That 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 relaunches on PBS in November 2018. Check local listings at www.americancreed.org.
