First Freedom: The Fight for Religious Liberty airs on Monday at 9 pm

Hear the story of how the Founding Fathers raised the ideal of religious freedom to the level of a fundamental human right — told through re-enactments, the Founding Fathers’ own words and the commentary of key experts. The documentary profiles the lives and times of the colonial Americans — including Jefferson, Franklin and Washington — who codified freedom of conscience for the first time in human history as an inalienable right protected by law.

First Freedom: The Fight for Religious Liberty airs on Monday, March 17th at 9 pm on channel 3.
