About the Event

AN AMERICAN STORY: RACE AMITY AND THE OTHER TRADITION 

A Film by the National Center for Race Amity and Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame Awardee, Dr. William H. `Smitty' Smith, Ed. D. that tackles racism through friendship and collaboration. 

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. The documentary discusses the "better in us" a needed collective perspective in the current climate of national disunity across racial, religious, and political lines.
