Resilience: Vision for a New America is a 70 min documentary film that features Rev. angel as a leading protagonist. The film aims to invigorate a world in which there is space for the humanity of all. We have recently seen a resurgence of a strong anti-racist and pro-feminist activism. And at the same time, alliance is thwarted by often bitterly polarized discussions around identity. In this context, the vision and practice that Rev. angel articulates offers a way to move forward.

Called “the most intriguing African-American Buddhist” by Library Journal, Rev. angel Kyodo williams is a zen teacher, activist, master trainer and founder of Transformative Change. She is the author of Being Black: Zen and the Art of Living with Fearlessness and Grace, and co-author of Radical Dharma: Talking Race, Love & Liberation. She has visited Clouds in Water Zen Center twice in the past three years to offer retreats and workshops. This video screening is offered in preparation for her return visit in May of this year.

                             No registration is necessary – Donations are welcome and will help cover the costs associated with Reverend angel’s visit in May.
