"GSMD member Connie Baxter Marlow and Andrew Cameron Bailey...will premiere their short documentary film at the Boston Public Library Nov. 10, 2016, 5-8 pm with a forum and Call to Action ["Unity 2020!"] to inaugurate the James Phinney Baxter Lecture Series.
“SEEDS OF FREEDOM: A Vision for America” ... presents a revolutionary look at the synthesis between European colonists and the American Indian in the evolution of American democracy, mind and spirit.
Film Synopsis: Eminent philanthropist/historian James Phinney Baxter (1831-1921) believed that America must embody the high ideals of New England's original settlers if it is to become a global exemplar of liberty, equality and justice. In 1921 he left a bequest instructing Boston to build a Pantheon to perpetuate the founding ideals and principles. Baxter's great-great-granddaughter Connie Baxter Marlow adds a missing piece - the role of the American Indian in the evolution of American democracy, mind and spirit.
Special guests Mohawk elder Tom Porter and Pilgrim Scholar Gary Marks will present insights into the Iroquois Great Law and the Pilgrim vision for humanity as they apply to today and the future."
