Norman Lear Portrait

Norman Lear in the Rector’s Forum

Sunday, December 11

We are thrilled to welcome Norman Lear — producer of groundbreaking television shows such as “All in the Family,” “The Jeffersons,” and “Good Times” (among many others) — to the Rector’s Forum. In 1981 Lear decided to leave the world of television for political activism founding “People for the American Way,” a nonprofit organization dedicated to protecting First Amendment rights, strengthening public education, and promoting electoral and immigration reform. Lear is also a founder of “Declare Yourself” — a national nonpartisan, nonprofit campaign created to empower and encourage eligible young adults to register and vote.

His memoir, “Even This I Get to Experience” provides an inside look at the advent of television from one of the industry’s most transformative players and the PBS American Masters biography, “Norman Lear: Just Another Version of You” is airing on Netflix this Fall. Lear is a World War II veteran, has received four Emmy awards, a Peabody, and was awarded a National Medal of Arts by President Clinton.

Join us for what promises to be an equally entertaining and inspiring Rector’s Forum.
Sunday, December 11 in the church. Books will be available for purchase.
