The Soul of America
Available on Prime Video, Crave, Telus TV+
Throughout American life, "our better angels" have battled to lead the country forward--and prevailed. This documentary, based on Jon Meacham's 2018 bestseller, illuminates our present-day, fraught political reality by exploring historical challenges including the women's suffrage movement, the incarceration of Japanese Americans, McCarthyism, and the fight to pass Civil Rights legislation in the 1960s. These turning points serve as reminders of the progress made and the struggle that continues.
