American Creed

ABOUT

ABOUT AMERICAN CREED

What does it mean to be American? What holds us together in turbulent times?

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice and Pulitzer Prize-winning historian David M. Kennedy come together from remarkably different backgrounds, life experiences and points of view to explore the idea of a unifying American creed. Their spirited inquiry frames the stories of a range of citizen-activists striving to realize their own visions of America’s promise across deep divides.

MORE ABOUT AMERICAN CREED

AMERICAN CREED launched as a nationally televised PBS Special Feb. 27, and as a feature documentary on PBS.org Feb. 28, 2018. The launch was viewed by 785,000 people and marked the beginning of 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.

American Creed relaunches on PBS this fall. Check local listings at www.pbs.org/americancreed.
