A performance of personal true stories by actors and others, this event grows out of the Martin Luther King quote on our website:

We must develop and maintain the capacity to forgive. He who is devoid of the power to forgive, is devoid of the power to love. There is some good in the worst of us and some evil in the best of us. When we discover this, we are less prone to hate our enemies.

Our aim is to create a meaningful event of short personal stories and moving music to foster empathy and spark discussion. Music, food, and fun are also part of the plan!
