America Inside Out




National Geographic and the
Museum of Tolerance invite you to a special screening from National Geographic’s new series with Katie Couric:


Wednesday, April 25, 2018
7:00 p.m.
at the Museum of Tolerance

The episode “White Anxiety” explores the raw, even angry, divisions between urban white-collar “elites” and rural Rust Belt working-class people. The latter, once the backbone of the economy and firmly middle-class, feel the American dream their grandparents helped build is being taken away from them.

Katie Couric spends time in the heart of the communities that have lived through massive demographic, technological and cultural change: Johnstown and Erie in western Pennsylvania; Fremont, Nebraska; and Storm Lake, Iowa. She sees firsthand how the closing of factories, battles over immigration and the opioid epidemic have shaped the lives, the hopes and the fears of people there. They tell her why they believe the media, Hollywood and Washington just don’t understand or respect them. As she listens and learns, Katie Couric asks whether there is a way to bind up the mistrust and misunderstanding to move forward together as a nation.

A discussion will follow.
Continue the conversation at a dessert reception.

“White Anxiety” Premieres Wed., May 2 at 10/9c on National Geographic
