Constitution Day 2018: "American Creed" Screening and Discussion

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 travel across the United States exploring the idea of what it means to be an American today. Sharing stories of people from diverging backgrounds and points of views, American Creed highlights different visions of the American promise as well as moments where different sides find common ground. Join us for a screening of this PBS film, followed by a discussion.

On September 17, 1787, the 55 delegates to the Constitutional Convention held their final meeting ~ to sign the U.S. Constitution. A federal law directs public schools and universities to hold programs to commemorate that day. The University of Nevada, Reno is proud to offer events each year that allow students, faculty, campus administrators and the community to discuss the Constitution, its meaning and the freedoms it ensures.
