“Beyond Belief” Documentary Showing
Meredith College will recognize the 10th anniversary of 9/11 with a showing of the documentary “Beyond Belief” on Sunday, Sept. 11, 2011, at 7 p.m. in Kresge Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

“Beyond Belief” tells the story of two courageous women whose lives were changed after their husbands were killed in the attacks of 9/11. The women decided to go to Afghanistan where the terrorists were trained. Their goal was to meet war widows there, to try to understand the lives of those women, and to try to understand why it happened.
