The Baha’i Community is delighted to share with you news of the upcoming national broadcast on public television of the documentary film An American Story: Race Amity and the Other Tradition.
The documentary was produced by the National Center for Race Amity and co-sponsored by the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’is of the United States as a means of promoting public discourse on race relations.
Beginning on November 11 and continuing through November 30, the film will be
broadcast across the nation on PBS through its network of 350 affiliated local stations.
By illuminating significant past episodes of loving friendship and collaboration that
demonstrably transcended race, 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 and
continue our ascent toward true equality, justice, and unity. We hope it will serve as a
resource in your interactions with family, friends, and neighbors on this vital subject.
