He was a mentor to Martin Luther King, Jr and the entire Civil Rights Movement, a leading critic of the Vietnam War, a champion for Soviet Jews and a pioneer in the work of interfaith dialogue.

Journey Films is excited to announce our next project, SPIRITUAL AUDACITY: The Abraham Heschel Story.

Heschel came to America in 1940, barely escaping the Holocaust in Europe, and went on to become one of the most influential religious figures of the era. He was friend and mentor to Martin Luther King, Jr, and the entire Civil Rights Movement, an outspoken critic of the war in Vietnam, a leading voice for interfaith unity and a champion for Soviet Jews. Heschel's writings - The Prophets, The Sabbath, God in Search of Man and many others, remain religious classics to this day, studied in seminaries and religious programs around the world.

Watch for updates about the early release of the film on DVD and the schedule for broadcast in late 2020 or early 2021 on your local PBS station.

Friend of Journey Dr. Cornel West shares his thoughts after George Floyd's funeral.

In today’s funeral for George Floyd there was "not one reference to hatred or revenge. It was all about love and justice," says Dr.
Cornel West.

"The Floyd family lifted up that spiritual moral banner in the midst of a moment in which we got all of the lies and crimes."

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.
