Prof. Jay Rosenstein's award winning documentary, The Lord Is Not On Trial Here Today, will show at The Art Theatre in downtown Champaign Thursday, Sept. 13 at 7:00 pm. The screening is free and the public is welcome.


The Lord Is Not On Trial Here Today is a Peabody and Emmy Award-winning documentary that tells the compelling personal story of the late Vashti McCollum, and how her efforts to protect her ten 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.
