Notre Dame Press publishes companion book for PBS Documentary, “In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America”

Author: Kathryn Pitts

 

 

Narrated by Liam Neeson, "In the Name of Peace: John Hume in America" shares how legendary Irish politician and Nobel Prize–winner John Hume—inspired by the American Civil Rights movement—harnessed the power of Irish America and built relationships with the White House and U.S. Congress to bring peace to Northern Ireland. The hour-long documentary tells the story of one man's achievement through the testimonies of those who helped him and understood his objectives for lasting peace. The film features original interviews with former U.S. presidents Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter; former British Prime Ministers Tony Blair and Sir John Major; two Irish Taoisigh (Prime Ministers) Bertie Ahern and Enda Kenny; Senator George Mitchell; Bono; Mrs Pat Hume (wife of the late John Hume); diplomats, journalists, and historians. It is a timely reminder that peace and reconciliation must be constantly pursued. Watch the trailer here
