Narrated by Cokie Roberts, the film Democracy’s Messengers provides a fly-on-the-wall peek into Washington’s halls of power. For centuries, a select group of young people have been recruited from across the country to serve as “pages” in the U.S. Congress and the Supreme Court. The film reveals their stories and recounts the tumultuous events in U.S. history they witnessed—from the Revolutionary War to 9/11. Following the screening of the 30-minute film, producer Jerry Papazian will talk with former pages Frank Mitchell (House '65, the first 20th-century African American page), Jonathan Turley (House ’79), and Camilla Bosanquet (House ‘91).
