An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story explores the life and influence of Niebuhr (1892-1971), a theologian, writer, political activist and one of the most influential public intellectuals of the twentieth century. Presidents from Barack Obama to Jimmy Carter have credited his impact on their thinking, as did Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who cited Niebuhr in his “Letter from a Birmingham Jail.” The screening will be followed by a discussion of Niebuhr’s ongoing relevance with filmmaker Martin Doblmeier, Austin Seminary Professors Cynthia L. Rigby and Asante Todd, and UT Professor Eric McDaniel. Co-presented with UT's Harry Ransom Center.
