Although he may be best remembered today as the author of the famed “Serenity Prayer,” Reinhold Niebuhr—an outspoken American-born pastor, writer, and political activist—remains one of the most influential public theologians of our time. An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story is directed, written, and narrated by Martin Doblmeier (COM’80), the creator of dozens of provocative, award-winning films on faith including Chaplains and Bonhoeffer. Rich in archival material, the documentary features interviews with former President Jimmy Carter, Cornel West, Andrew Young, David Brooks, Susannah Heschel and a host of internationally recognized historians and theologians. The screening will be followed by a discussion with Doblmeier and other panelists. A reception will follow. You can learn more about the film on the website americanconscience.com.
