“Join or Die” Film Screening
August 25 @ 6:30 pm - 8:45 pm
The Village Square is hosting a film screening of the documentary Join or Die. Join or Die, a feature documentary, follows the half-century story of America’s civic unraveling through the journey of legendary social scientist Robert Putnam, whose groundbreaking “Bowling Alone” research examines America’s decades-long decline in community connections. The screening is being offered in observance of the 60th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
Dr. Robert Putnam is a noted Harvard Kennedy School political scientist and the author of the book Bowling Alone and 13 other books that have been translated into twenty languages.
The screening begins at 6:45 pm with doors opening at 6:30 pm at The Challenger Center on Kleman Plaza. Registration is required to attend.
This screening is part of The Village Square’s UNUM: Democracy Reignited initiative in partnership with Florida Humanities. Funding for this initative is provided in part with funds from the National Endowment for the Humanities and in partnership with The Village Square. Any views, findings, conclusions or recommendations expressed in this program do not necessarily represent those of Florida Humanities or the National Endowment for the Humanities.
