Video on Diversity

sample 45 second preview of the 6 minute video.

Title of Video: The Sun Shines On Everyone
Are you greater than the sun
that shines on everyone:
Black, Brown, Yellow, Red and White
the sun does not discriminate
© 1985 Sara Ting

This video tells the story of the Sun poem that expresses a timeless and universal message. It offers an empowering and enlightening perspective on diversity. The Boston City Council passed a resolution in 2018 recognizing the Sun Poem as a powerful tool to help us see our common humanity. The poem inspired books, bookmarkers, magnets, and posters as additional communication medium to convey the message. These tools have been introduced to public schools, universities in 49 states across the US, as well as numerous housing authorities.

This video can serve as a catalyst for a dialogue on diversity. It can help participants understand we have more in common than differences. A booklet on conducting a dialogue on diversity and inclusion inspired by the Sun poem is available. It provides guidelines to facilitate dialogue, interactive exercises, and simple practices to cultivate a mindset of valuing diversity and inclusion. It’s recommended this program be conducted for 2 – 2 ½ hours with 25-30 participants. The video is $350 with a booklet to conduct a diversity dialogue. You can also purchase the booklet for $15. Prices do not include shipping costs
