Callista Gingrich is President of Gingrich Productions, a multimedia production company based in Washington, DC. Together with her husband Newt, she hosts and produces historical and public policy documentaries. Recent films include A City Upon A Hill, Nine Days That Changed The World, and Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous with Destiny. She is the author of a New York Times bestselling children's book about American exceptionalism, Sweet Land of Liberty.

During the 2012 Republican presidential campaign, Callista emerged as one of the conservative movement's leading female voices. Traveling the country in support of her husband Newt's presidential bid, she championed the causes of American exceptionalism and religious liberty. In addition to her active role in the 2012 campaign, Callista offers nearly two decades of staff experience in the United States House of Representatives, where she served as Chief Clerk of the House Committee on Agriculture until 2007.

In June of 1979, Pope John Paul II’s historic nine-day trip to Poland created a revolution of conscience that transformed the nation and fundamentally reshaped the spiritual and political landscape of the 20th Century.


Callista and her husband Newt brought this story once again to light in their documentary film, Nine Days that Changed the World, in which they explore what transpired during these nine days that moved the Polish people to renew their hearts, reclaim their courage, and free themselves from the shackles of Communism. Although still largely unknown to many outside of Poland, Pope John Paul II’s trip truly did change the course of history, exposing the Communist system’s fatal spiritual void.


As a lifelong Catholic of Polish heritage, Callista discusses on a deeply personal level the events of June 1979 and the important lessons they hold for us today.


American Exceptionalism has been at the heart of our nation’s experience for nearly 400 years, but today this experience faces grave challenges – political, cultural, and economic. As a nation, we must decide whether to preserve the ideals that have made us unique, or whether to become just another country.


Callista explains that the source of American Exceptionalism is displayed in a single document – the Declaration of Independence. The key in this document is our Founding Fathers’ assertion that “we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal,” and that we are endowed by our Creator with unalienable rights – rights that no government can take away. It is this assertion – that our rights come from God – that makes America truly exceptional.


Callista has travelled the country defending the values America has uniquely prized, and she makes a compelling case for why we must pass these lessons on to future generations, now perhaps more than ever.
