An American Story: Race Amity and The Other Tradition is a film about “the other tradition” in American race relations, the tradition of amity and close cross-racial collaboration to advance equity and social justice.

This one-hour documentary examines many little known examples of racial amity and conciliation in the United States. Its thesis is that close cross-racial and cross-cultural amity has been a part of virtually every critical advance in access and equity in America’s racial history. This other tradition has served as the moral and spiritual counterweight to the dominant tradition of racism that occupies so much of our national history. It is empowering to both European and non-European Americans, and enlarges the critical mass of concerned people from all racial and cultural backgrounds who can make race amity and equity a priority in their lives.

Watch it tonight at 9pm on WGBH 2
