Amazing Grace, a children's story against racism

Amazing GraceAmazing Grace by Mary Hoffman

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Don't tell Grace she can't play Peter Pan in the school play!

Inspiring children's story. Good way to get kids thinking about biases based on race and gender.

Urge Your Local ABC Affliate to Air "Waging Peace"

 From the National Council of Churches News:
Waging Peace will air on ABC at the discretion of local affiliated TV stations. Stations that decide to show the documentary will air it sometime between Oct. 23 and Dec. 18. Churches are encouraged to call their local ABC TV stations to urge them to air the documentary. 
  1. See if when or if your affiliate is to air the documentary
  2. If it isn't, contact your local ABC affiliate and ask it to broadcast the documentary.
WJBF, my hometown affiliate in Augusta, GA, has not yet made the decision to air the documentary. I already made my call! I also Tweeted my message to @WJBF!
