Screening of ‘American Creed’

SELINSGROVE — Susquehanna University, in collaboration with the Borough of Selinsgrove and Snyder County Libraries, will host an “American Creed” Community Conversations film screening and scholar-facilitated discussion at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, in the Selinsgrove Borough Building.

In “American Creed,” former U.S. 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.

Selinsgrove’s screening will be followed by a scholar-facilitated discussion that will mirror the type of conversation Rice and Kennedy have in the film.

Selinsgrove’s discussion will also be led by: Nick Clark, associate professor and head of the Department of Political Science, Susquehanna University; Harvey Edwards, teacher-in-residence, Susquehanna University; Rabbi Nina Mandel, Temple Beth-El, Sunbury; and Pamela Ross, executive director, Snyder County Libraries.
