"The Lord is Not On Trial Here Today" is a Peabody Award-winning documentary that tells the compelling personal story of Vashti McCollum and how her efforts to protect her 10-year-old son led to one of the most important and landmark First Amendment cases in U.S. Supreme Court history — the case that established the separation of church and state in public schools. The case is little-known by the contemporary American public, yet the McCollum decision continues to have important ramifications for current conflicts over the role of religion in public institutions – from displays of the Ten Commandments in government buildings to student-led prayers at public school graduation ceremonies. A short discussion follows the film; open to the public.
