Film Promotes Unity
"This is part of the work to continue doing, coming to see the movie, is like taking another step, spending more energy that is positive," human rights educator Nanette Chun-Ming Ward said.
There's another chance to watch the documentary on Tues., March 20 at the Boone County Health Department from 6-8 p.m. That meeting will be a chance for everyone to talk about how to help Columbia create a better unity and campaign against hate crimes.
Monday night's event was part of the city's Community Study Circles Program. A handout shared at the event said the mission of a community circle dialogue is to "strengthen community relationships by engaging citizens in dialogues on diversity." Its vision is for "people from all walks of life in Columbia to hear, appreciate, understand, respect and trust each other in an inclusive community that celebrates the oneness of humanity."
