Lee and Richard Hamilton: Conversations with a Politician and a Pastor
When the Hamilton brothers and their family moved to Indiana decades ago as children, they weren’t even sure they could place it on a map. But before long they each had made their mark — on the Hoosier state and well beyond it.
"Lee and Richard Hamilton: Conversations with a Politician and a Pastor," is their life stories and much more.
“It’s two premier thinkers expressing themselves in candid conversation,” says co-producer and moderator Judy O’Bannon.
As a 34-year member of congress and chairman of the Iran-Contra Committee and the 9-11 Commission, Lee Hamilton’s quiet, thoughtful leadership established him as one of our nation’s most valued advisors, negotiators and policy makers. Richard Hamilton, as the longtime pastor of North United Methodist Church in Indianapolis, has been a tireless crusader, marching with Martin Luther King, and championing the causes of a peaceful and just community.
The two brothers talk about a wealth of issues — war and the atomic bomb, politics versus policy, growing up with a pastor father and more.
"Lee and Richard Hamilton: Conversations with a Politician and a Pastor," airs in three, half-hour segments.
