What unites and divides us? Surely as human beings we have more in common than we have differences. We all want to live healthy lives and be happy. We want a better life for our children and a safe environment to pursue those things that contribute to our goals. It’s hard to believe that with all the technology and information that we have in this day and age, people still judge a person by the color of their skin rather than their character because of prejudice and their own personal demons. We see evidence that one life is viewed as more valuable than another in random police killings of young men of color. What happens to a community divided in the wake of such such tragic events? How does the healing begin? These are the issues that we will delve into in this segment on “What Unites and Divides.”
We will also explore the art of screenwriting and what it takes to be successful in the industry as an independent screenwriter.
Our guest, Jamila Brown, is a writer, screenwriter, director and actress from New York City. Her film, Go Fish, is about an intercultural friendship, that takes place shortly after the Crown Heights riot of 1991. As we fast forward to events of today, her message still rings true.

Channing Tatum and Mila Kunis star in "Jupiter Ascending," an original science fiction epic adventure from filmmakers Lana and Andy Wachowski. Jupiter Jones (Kunis) was born under a night sky, with signs predicting that she was destined for great things. Now grown, Jupiter dreams of the stars but wakes up to the cold reality of a job cleaning other people's houses and an endless run of bad breaks. Only when Caine (Tatum), a genetically engineered ex-military hunter, arrives on Earth to track her down does Jupiter begin to glimpse the fate that has been waiting for her all along—her genetic signature marks her as next in line for an extraordinary inheritance that could alter the balance of the cosmos. From the streets of Chicago to far flung galaxies whirling through space, "Jupiter Ascending" is written and directed by the Wachowskis. Award-winning producer Grant Hill, with whom they have collaborated since "The Matrix" Trilogy, is producing, together with Lana Wachowski and Andy Wachowski. Roberto Malerba and Bruce Berman serve as executive producers.
