“John Hume in America” Screening
January 23 @ 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm
The Carter Library presents a free screening of “In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America” — a feature documentary which includes interviews with President Bill Clinton, President Jimmy Carter, many US Senators and Congressmen, as well as Irish leaders and British Prime Ministers Tony Blair and John Major. Inspired by Martin Luther King, rising from the riot-torn streets of Northern Ireland to enlist American Presidents from Carter to Clinton, this is the story of the extraordinary work of Nobel Prize-winner John Hume to harness and leverage US support to help to secure peace in Ireland. Discussion follows screening. Free and open to the public.
