The video of the virtual opening of our online art show, Just, Diverse, United: The Destiny of America is now available. The evening included an opening presentation by performing artists sharing pieces inspired by the show’s themes and a dialogue space with artists Masud Olufani, Arya Badiyan and Emiliano Morondos to engage in deeper conversation.

“We ardently pray that the American people will grasp the possibilities of this moment to create a consequential reform of the social order that will free it from the pernicious effects of racial prejudice and will hasten the attainment of a just, diverse, and united society that can increasingly manifest the oneness of the human family.”

“Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees… Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world.”
