i Newton Minow: An American Story
Newton Minow: An American Story is a film about a man whose principled engagement in public life elevates the common good and advances the American ideals of liberty and justice for all. Newton Minow’s journey traverses two centuries as he plays a role in pivotal events from World War II to the Cuban Missile Crisis to the Civil Rights struggles, from the advent of television to the cyber-connected current day. He does this all the while collaborating across political, cultural and idealogical lines with the most recognized and unrecognized people of our time.
