American Creed is a documentary that discusses what ideals shape the United States, and how to define our national identity through a set of unifying beliefs – an “American creed.” In the film, Condoleezza Rice and David Kennedy ask a diverse group of Americans what it means to be American, and whether an “American creed” can unite us.   The Plymouth District Library is showing the film and hosting community discussions.  The film will be shown on Saturday April  13, at 1:00 p.m.  88.1 the Park’s Kaylie Seifert spoke with Adult Services Coordinator, Holly Hibner, about the film.
