Narrated by Pulitzer Prize–winning historian David McCullough, The Words That Built America (2017; 50 minutes) is a filmed unabridged reading of the authentic words of our founding fathers. Joining us to introduce the film will be Director-Producer Alexandra Pelosi, who brought together more than 100 readers, including all the living Presidents and Vice Presidents, as well as Supreme Court Justices, Cabinet secretaries, and the leaders of the Senate and House of Representatives, along with a wide array of celebrities, leading media figures, and young people to read these iconic documents.
