Screening of Hamilton's America Last Night at the JHU Center

Alex Horwitz came to the JHU Center for Advanced Governmental Studies last night to share a screening of his documentary, Hamilton's America.  The film was a collaborative project Alex did with Lin Manual Miranda, the creator and writer of the hit Broadway musical, Hamilton.  Lin and Alex were college friends and fellow history buffs.  They wanted to do the film to provide a history of the life of Alexander Hamilton, well before the play Hamilton had been conceived.  The film intersperses footage from the Broadway hit with discussion of Hamilton's own rise as a prominent figure in the United States.


After viewing the film, Alex fielded questions about the making of the documentary as well as larger questions about how to teach civics to American school children and how the political contours of the United States have been indelibly shaped by the Hamilton and Jefferson divide.  It was both an historical and timely discussion.
