Aardvark Celebrates American Heroes

Aardvark continues its 48th season with another video from our archives.  As Election Day is less than 2 weeks away, we are thinking about how all of us can stand together to protect our democracy. 

Please join us in watching Tony Hill’s short film about Mark Sumner Harvey’s tonal portrait of his ancestor Charles Sumner (1811-1874), abolitionist, statesman, and United States senator from Massachusetts.  The mini-documentary, first shown in 2011, captures Harvey’s vivid tribute to this American hero, who stood against powerful forces in a battle for the soul of our democracy.
