World Channel Picks Up American Stories Series September 12, 2021
We are excited to announce that World Channel has picked up our American Stories Five Half-Hour Series. The series will be aired consecutively on Sunday, September 12, 2021, beginning at 8:00 pm ET through 10:30 pm ET. Link below to find out on which call station it will show in your area. This series takes the five key stories from the An American Story: Race Amity and The Other Tradition documentary, and showcases each one with even more detail, integrating each with further cross-racial/cross-cultural pairings, not previously shared in the first documentary.
Impacting Public Discourse on Race
The primary purpose of the documentary project, An American Story: Race Amity and The Other Tradition, is to impact the public discourse on race. To move the discourse from the “blame/grievance/rejection” cycle to a view from a different lens, the lens of “amity/collaboration/access and equity.”
Other Tradition in Contrast to Racist Traditions
In contrast to the lens that focuses exclusively on the racist traditions that are rooted in America’s social history, the moral counterweight of close, loving, friendship and collaboration, which have always been present in our history, represents “the other tradition.” This “other tradition” is a source of inspiration and presents models of behavior that are instructional and include unknown and uncelebrated legacies to be absorbed and emulated across generations of present-day Americans.
Collective Perspective Needed in Current National Climate
The documentary discusses the “better in us” a needed collective perspective in the current climate of national disunity across racial, religious, and political lines. This has significant implications for addressing public issues from immigration to health care and the myriad of governmental, educational, business, and religious challenges that we must successfully meet to weave the fabric of unity that is indispensable to survival as a nation.
