She's been called uncompromising. Prophetic. A peacemaker. No wonder documentary filmmaker Martin Doblmeier admits to having been "afraid" to tackle Dorothy Day as a subject. The woman who co-founded ...

Civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was born on this day in 1929. In this iconic photograph of the historic 1965 Selma march for the right to vote, King marches side by side with Ralph Bunche, an African American scholar who received the Nobel Peace Prize for his mediation in Israel, and Rabbi Abraham Heschel, who brought King's message to a wide Jewish audience. As allies, the concern they shared was “saving the soul of America.” https://thejm.net/2NsE5kq

I just watched Revolution of the Heart and found it to be fascinating. I knew just a little bit about Dorothy Day and learned a lot from this show; now I need to read more. I'm pretty sure that I went to grade school with Martin Doblmeier.
Do you know what time on Friday March 6th the Dorothy Day documentary is. I believe it is to show on PBS. Thank you!
It's great to see Martin Doblmeier receiving an honorary degree from Loma Linda University's School of Behavioral Health and School of Religion. Doctor of Humane Letters: what will you do for an encore?
I'm just seeing this page for the first time. It immediately hit me like a ton of bricks because 1413 King Street, Alexandria VA used to be my grandparents home. Wow.
Congratulations, Journey Films, for winning the Wilbur Award for An American Conscience. It's a great film, and the award is well-deserved.
