The Search for COMMON GROUND episode one

COMMON GROUND episode one

I think we should all come together, and that race and color and social demographics really don’t matter. – Joanne Noelle Levesque, I am JoJo

COMMON GROUND CREATED BY KENDALL F. PERSON
WELCOME TO MY GHETTO

 

Introduction

PREMISE
What if our prejudices were
based on misconceptions? What if personal beliefs, had no effect on our neighbor’s pursuit of happiness? What if the saying “I’m okay and you’re okay.” is actually true? And what if the bitterness and mistrust between fellow citizens and those who call the USA home, was all imagined –  until we began to believe it? And what if both celebrating and defending our individual differences – within respect and civility – served as confirmation, that as one nation, we are stronger than the demographics, that divide us?  And what if all we had to do to heal… was search for common ground?

MISSION
To help change the dialogue by changing the way we view demographics of the same nation, but in the form of reality entertainment.

Ultimately, to learn more about American demographics, but through real life Americans. But sharing and teaching about who we are can be an uncomfortable challenge and accepting what we learn about ‘others’ even directly from those ‘others’, in contrast to what we think we know, can be a high hurdle. But only your votes and the judges can decide who has reached common ground.

Wednesday Nov.9th: First Search in the form of a Question or a Mission.
