Created Equal: Conversations on the American Social Contract

September 11, 2014

What do we owe each other? How can we deliver on the promise of equality that animates our democracy?

Mass Humanities celebrates its fortieth anniversary with a film-and-discussion program that takes on urgent questions about the American social contract today.

Join moderator Liz Duclos-Orsello and our partners for one of our 2-hour conversations followed by a reception. We will show clips selected from among the NEH's Created Equal films (The Loving Story, Slavery by Another Name, Freedom Riders) as well as from The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers, a film funded by Mass Humanities.

Held in four locations across Massachusetts:

  • 7-10 p.m. on September 11, 2014 at Everett Mill, Lawrence
  • 2-5 p.m. on October 19, 2014 at Brockton High School, Brockton
  • 7-10 p.m. on October 23, 2014 at Berkshire Museum, Pittsfield
