“The greatness of a community is most accurately measured by the compassionate actions of its members.” This quote by Coretta Scott King accurately sums up the spirit and action of those people who not only believed that different races could live together in unity, they created their community around that ideal.
Years after the community of Sunnyhills, the first planned racially-integrated community in the United States, was formed, people are still being influenced by the love, unity and courage of people who, in the fact of a divided country, decided to take action and demonstrate what true community is like.
This week, I continue my conversation with Donnie Eiland, Executive Producer of “54“, a documentary on the founding of the Milpitas, California community of Sunnyhills, and about what makes this community so special.
