Featuring a one-hour Preview Screening from "Things of the
Spirit" - The first film ever made on the personal and political
life of Calvin Coolidge, 30th President of the United
Following his death in 1933, historians and journalists hijacked
Calvin Coolidge from serious consideration by the American people.
As a result, the public seldom questions the prevailing view that
Coolidge was a do-nothing "capitalist tool" whose presidency served
only as a prelude to disaster. "Things of the Spirit" will
change that perception. Through primary material, testimony by
historians and economists, and unseen archival film rescued and
incorporated into this documentary - audiences can, for the first
time, gain insight into "perhaps our most misunderstood President."
Join us for this fascinating view of Calvin Coolidge - truly a life
for our time.
