In the Portland metro area, an important documentary will be shown Tuesday, January 22nd, at 10:00 pm on KOPB. “The documentary An American Story: Race Amity and the Other Tradition, will be shown in a new series of national broadcasts. The film will be broadcast on the WORLD Channel and its family of 155 affiliated public television stations across the country.
Produced by the National Center for Race Amity and co-sponsored by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of the United States as a means of promoting public discourse on race relations, An American Story illuminates significant past episodes of collaboration and loving friendship that transcended race. In so doing, the film seeks to light the way out of the morass of racial prejudice and to fire our enthusiasm for renewed efforts to build community, continuing our ascent toward true equality, justice, and unity.
We hope this inspiring film will serve as a valuable resource in your conversations with family, friends, and neighbors on the subject of race relations, vital to our nation’s present and future well-being and the fulfillment of its highest aspirations.” (Excerpts from a letter from the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá’ís of the United States) For more information: https://raceamity.org/
