New 2012 film -- DIALOGUE IN NIGERIA: Muslims & Christians Creating Their Future
TOOLS for face-to-face communication excellence are illustrated by "enemy" Africans in this new, 65-minuted 2012 documentary film -- DIALOGUE IN NIGERIA: Muslims & Christians Creating Their Future.
COST-FREE DVDs are avaiable upon request and mailed anywhere on Earth to those who will use them.
200 courageous Muslims and Christians – diverse young women and men – unite successfully in Jos, central Nigeria.
Refusing to be enemies, they are together during days and evenings of the 2010 International Conference on Youth and Interfaith Communication.
Tense yet excited they finally cross lines of religion, economics, tribe, and gender to transcend the status quo and discover empathy for each other's personal life experiences.
Together they realize that "an enemy is one whose story we have not heard," while listening-to-learn and thus dignifying themselves and the "others."
Face-to-face and in small circles, they begin with ice-breakers and continue in depth to discover one another's equal humanity – fear, grief, needs, hopes, and concrete plans for a shared future.
Determined young Nigerians illustrate how others worldwide can successfully connect and communicate to create authentic community.
