Ali Dade

Phi Alpha Theta, Washburn’s History honor society, will be showing the PBS Documentary “Hamilton’s America” at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 2 in Henderson 112.

The documentary follows the making of the multiple-award winning Broadway hip-hop musical “Hamilton.” The music, lyrics and book were all written by Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is the primary focus of the documentary. The musical is a retelling of the biography of American Founding Father, Alexander Hamilton, who helped establish our first financial system. The show tells the story of his career, working alongside other famous politicians such as George Washington, Thomas Jefferson and Aaron Burr. It also gives an inside perspective of Hamilton’s personal life.
