PROJECT: Obama: In Pursuit of a More Perfect Union

PARTNER: Kunhardt Film Foundation

MATERIALS CREATED: We are so, so honored to be creating the Educational Resource Platform for the 3 part documentary series Obama: In Pursuit of a More Perfect Union. The platform includes an in-depth Engagement Guide connecting all 3 episodes alongside a full high school curriculum for students to examine the personal and political journey and challenges as the 44th President of the United States set against the backdrop of the country’s racial history. It traces his own search for identity and his role in shaping a more inclusive American identity that has been under attack since he left office. Through the words of some of the people who knew him best, and through some of his sharpest critics, the film ultimately reveals the fallacy of America as a post-racial society and confronts the work still needed to achieve a more perfect union as the work of a country, not just one man.
