This live version of a 2009 History Channel doc has a possibly stultifying premise: Presentations from civic leaders and others reading remarks from historical figures. But: Did I mention that Matt Damon was there? Yes, Matt Damon was totally there. This event was extremely, extremely sold-out, including the standing-room-only tickets. The night's readings included words from labor organizers, civil-rights activists, Sam Cooke and Studs Terkel.
