Won’t You Be My Neighbor?

Won't you be my neighbor?

In Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, filmmaker Morgan Neville looks back on the legacy of Fred Rogers, focusing on his radically kind ideas. While the nation changed around him, Mr. Rogers spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues, in a simple, direct fashion.

The J is excited to present a free community opportunity to view and learn from this important film:
