2021 is the year of appreciation...for the traditions, the cultures, the innovations, and the many voices of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders. Throughout May, WORLD Channel will share AAPI stories of defiance, solidarity and humanity.
The definitive story of the civil rights era from the point of view of the ordinary men and women whose extraordinary actions launched a movement that changed the fabric of American life, and embodied a struggle whose reverberations continue to be felt today. Narrated by political leader and civil rights activist Julian Bond (1940-2015).
Tongan pensioner Saia Mafile’o and his family are stretched to the breaking point by his commitment and passion to God. The film offers a rich view of how contemporary secular families deal with the rigors of devout Christian tithing, as well as a unique insight into traditional Tongan culture.
