Story of America: A Nation Divided

Join the North Carolina Justice Center and Story of America on Thursday, August 8 for "Story of America: A Nation Divided", a film screening and town hall with documentary filmmakers and social activists Annabel Park and Eric Byler. 

The Story of America is a unique documentary project from filmmakers Annabel Park and Eric Byler that uses the transformative power of dialogue and storytelling to explore and heal the political, economic and cultural polarization of today's America.

Fifty years after the March on Washington and 150 years after the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation, this is a good moment to ask ourselves some serious questions about where we are in our history. How much progress has been made? What are our values? How are we realizing them? What unites us as a state, a country and as a people?

We invite you to come be a part of the discussion and filmmaking process by watching clips from Park and Byler’s recent journeys across North Carolina and to participate in a filmed town hall as part of this unique documentary project as they explore the role of dialogue and deliberation in creating a more informed, engaged and united citizenry.

The event will be held at Motorco Music Hall in Durham.
