Clinton explores the history of an American president who rose from a broken childhood to become one of the most successful politicians in modern American history. The program recounts a presidency that would define the crucial and transformative period between the fall of the Berlin Wall and 9/11, as well as considering how Clinton’s conflicted character made history, even as it enraged his enemies and confounded his friends. Clinton also features unprecedented access to scores of Clinton insiders, as well as interviews with foreign leaders, members of the Republican opposition, childhood friends, staffers from Clinton’s years as governor of Arkansas, biographers and journalists.
There will be a talkback with Kneeland, professor of history and political science at Nazareth College following the screening. Kneeland’s teaching incorporates civic engagement and public history, and he is currently working on a long-term project with community partners to reconstruct and retell the history of African Americans in the Rochester area. He often serves as a political analyst for local media, and his interest in American politics and cultural history is evident in his publications, which include Push Button Psychiatry: A Cultural History of Electroshock (2008 revised) and “Presidents and Radio,” a chapter in American Presidency in Popular Culture.
Clinton makes its TV premiere on WXXI-TV/HD Monday, February 20 at 9 p.m. and Tuesday, February 21 at 8 p.m.
