Overview
How a small liberal arts college in Berea, Kentucky fulfills big dreams—an international student perspective of overcoming adversity and pursuing the dream of studying and living in the United States
Description
"Of One Blood" showcases the perspectives of a diverse group of individuals who attended Kentucky's extraordinary Berea College. Pivoting on current issues like an alarming rise in xenophobia and ever-increasing tuition, these stories illuminate the challenges of leaving your own country and the valuable contributions diverse groups provide in their new homes. Virtually unknown in many parts of the world, Berea College is a powerful community changing lives for the better. Berea College lives up to its creed: 'God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth' (Acts 17:26). The school is distinctive among post-secondary institutions for providing free education to students and for having been the first college in the Southern United States to be coeducational and racially integrated. "Of One Blood" celebrates this unique American institution and proves that cultural diversity and education are our greatest strengths.
