An American Conscience:
The Reinhold Niebuhr Story
Wins Prestigious Wilbur Award
An American Conscience: The Reinhold Niebuhr Story has won the 2018 Wilbur Award for the best feature length work in Television & Cable. The annual award is given by the Religion Communicators Council honoring the best in television, film, books, and digital. Other winners this year include: 60 Minutes, Washington Post Magazine, CBS Sunday Morning and NPR.
This is the fourth Wilbur Award for Martin Doblmeier and Journey Films.
The Niebuhr film also won The Gabriel Award.
"Niebuhr was the great public theologian of the 20th century," said filmmaker Martin Doblmeier. "He brought a critical voice deeply rooted in faith and history to the social and political issues of his day. He became widely celebrated because he spoke in a way that appealed to both religious and non-religious people alike. We could use a Reinhold Niebuhr today."
Doblmeier continues to lead special screening events with the film including Austin Seminary (TX) in cooperation with the Harry Ransom Center April 24th at 6:30 pm. For more information contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
