Rais Bhuiyan was shot point-blank in a near-fatal hate crime ten days after 9/11. Not only did he forgive his attacker, he also fought to save his attacker's life.

Richard McKinney planned to detonate an explosive at a Mosque. After he was given a Koran, everything changed.

In a special film screening and discussion, hear from these two men who have traveled on unbelievable journeys from hate to love, joined by Joshua Seftel, the filmmaker who told their stories for the Emmy-nominated series of films, "The Secret Life of Muslims." This event, moderated by Yasmin Amer, producer of WBUR's Kind World podcast, is a testament to the power of redemption, showing just how much is possible when we choose to overcome hate.

Panel:

Rais Bhuiyan - Founder & President, World Without Hate
Richard McKinney - U.S. Marine Corps Veteran, Activist
Joshua Seftel - Series Creator and Executive Producer
