Tomorrow morning, a new exhibit in Sacramento aims to get people talking and thinking about race and religion.
The Unity Center was designed to take on the rise in political extremism. This center is a direct response to the firebombings of three Jewish synagogues in June of 1999 and the murders of a gay couple in Shasta County. Two brothers, both of them white supremacists, were convicted of all those crimes.
The Unity Center was designed to encourage visitors to take a stand against intolerance, hate and bigotry. Joining us now live is arts advocate, Dennis Mangers, who was instrumental in creating the Unity Center.
