Step back in time meet these brilliant American game changers – hear their stories – ask them how their world changed. Create a new nation with BEN FRANKLIN. Turn darkness into light with THOMAS EDISON. Spark the Electrical Revolution with NIKOLA TESLA. Set the stage for cell phones & Wi-Fi with Hollywood’s HEDY LAMARR. And like ROSA PARKS demand your Civil Rights.

There will be great story-telling, lots to laugh about, and deep secrets revealed. You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered. Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because you’re a part of the show. It’s not just history – it’s personal.
