Civility at the Nat'l Constitution Center

This is modified from a press release received today:

The National Constitution Center and filmmaker Ken Burns and PBS will announce on Friday an initiative to foster a national conversation about “Civility and Democracy.”

David Eisner, President and CEO of the National Constitution Center, and filmmaker Ken Burns, whose upcoming film, “PROHIBITION,” will serve as a starting point for the conversation, will make the announcement. Burns also will participate in the National Constitution Center’s “Can We Talk? A Conversation about Civility and Democracy in America” on Saturday, March 26, along with other participants from across the country, including former U.S. Representative Lee Hamilton, former Dept. of Justice Official John Yoo, and PBS NewsHour’s Hari Sreenivasan, among others. The conference is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities’ Bridging Cultures program.
