About this event
Collaborative Screening Presented with the Notre Dame Club of Omaha. The Notre Dame Club of Omaha is open to all Omaha-area Notre Dame alumni, subway alumni, parents, family and friends. The Omaha chapter — one of 270 worldwide — represents the University’s mission through dozens of events rooted in faith, fellowship, service, athletics and academics. Club dues annually provide thousands of dollars in scholarships for Omaha-area Notre Dame students. Film Information Amidst some of the most tumultuous times in our nation’s history, one unlikely figure finds himself in the eye of the storm as he works to advance the causes of peace and equal rights for all people. He is Rev. Theodore Hesburgh, C.S.C, long-time president of the University of Notre Dame. Hesburgh offers a unique glimpse at more than fifty years of American history. Educator, civil rights champion, advisor to presidents, envoy to popes, theologian and activist, Hesburgh was called on by countless world leaders to tackle the most challenging issues of the day. He built a reputation as a savvy political operator with a penchant for bridging the divide between bitter enemies. Through it all, he remained a man armed with a fierce intelligence, a quick wit and an unyielding moral compass — a timeless example of bipartisan leadership that would serve us in today’s increasingly polarized times. ― Music Box Films
