Pilot episode screening of “Philadelphia–The Great Experiment” and “Apostle of Freedom”

If you saw the front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer yesterday (October 4), you couldn’t miss the big story on Sam Katz’s “Philadelphia: The Great Experiment”.

On Sunday, November 7 at 2:30pm, Mr. Katz will come to Radnor Memorial Library to screen a pilot episode of the planned series. Sam Katz is the Executive Producer at History Making Productions in Philadelphia. The 30-minute pilot episode of Philadelphia–The Great Experiment will be followed by a discussion led by Katz, when he will be interested in hearing your comments. (Responses by the audiences who have seen this…”stunning” , “genuinely moving”)

Following the pilot, an 18-minute film on Bishop Richard Allen will be shown. This year is the 250th anniversary of Allen’s birth. It was just in June, 2010, that Radnor Township dedicated a new park (at the end of Brooke St.) in the Bishop’s honor.

Due to space limitations, reservations are required. Please register in person, or at the Library website radnorlibrary.org, or call Pam at 610-687-1124.

This is NOT 1776…it’s 19th century Philadelphia, when the remains of President Lincoln passed through Philadelphia and black cloth was hung from almost every house…
