About this event

Won't You Be My Neighbor will be screened at 6 p.m., Thursday, March 28 in the Auditorium of the Nebraska Union at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, 1400 R St.

The free event is presented by NET, Nebraska’s PBS & NPR Stations, in partnership with UNL. A popcorn bar will be available during the film, and a panel discussion will follow.

For over 30 years, Fred Rogers was beamed daily into homes across America where he and his cast of puppets and friends spoke simply and directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues. There wasn't anything like Mr. Rogers on TV before and there hasn’t been since. In Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville looks back on Rogers’ radical legacy of love and kindness.
