Peace It Together Students Use Haiku to Express Their Experience of Self-Exploration in Film

Reena Lazar is the Executive Director of Peace It Together, a program for students which

provides a unique dialogue and filmmaking program that offers youth the opportunity to connect deeply with their so-called “enemy” while co-creating short films that can be used as peace-building tools throughout the world.

Listen to some students express their experience in this program in haiku form. Clearly the program had a powerful impact on them.

The Writing Life: Maya Angelou and son Guy Johnson Live It

This conversation between two accomplished writers who speak with the ease of mother and son about something so rich and full as living the writer’s life moves you to write.

Listen for the gems casually thrown out as their love and respect for the power of the word and the stories about us they tell is revealed in the artful and playful dialogue.  Pick the emeralds and diamonds out of the air and hold them for a lifetime of wealth and beauty.
