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.

Who were the first Black Elected Officials? During the month of November, as the country gears up to re-elect or vote in the next wave of politicians, Black Reconstruction will revisit the Reconstruction era to pay homage to the Black Men who came before Obama. During this tumultuous time, Blacks not only established townships, they also positioned themselves to be an integral part of government.
At a Glance.. In 1855, Brownhelm Township, founded by Col. Henry Brown, gained notoriety throughout the U.S, when the township elected an African-American to government office. The NY Syracuse Daily Journal, May 31, 1855 reported that John Mercer Langston was a fugitive slave who had been elected clerk. Brownhelm's early residents had long been known for their strong anti-slavery stance; and Col. Henry Brown's home on the Lake Shore was often a final stop on the Underground Railroad, before reaching Canada by boat.
