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 20th 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. Co-presented by Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary.
