BOSTON /PRNewswire/ — The film ‘An American Story: Race Amity and the Other Tradition’ explores the moral counterweights to the tradition of racism in America and how we can move together towards our nation’s motto – ‘E Pluribus Unum’.

This thought-provoking, inspiring and emotional film tells the story of cross-cultural friendships that tackled racism and inequality in the past.

This racial amity has come to be known as ‘the other tradition’ of America and today, paves the way for us all to engage in positive discourse and action, in the current climate of national disunity.
