Turning Back Ignorance At The Gates Of Minsk

[Click on image for enlargement.]

Hello Pan Cogito,

America was built on the principles of equality and basic human rights for all. Recent mosque protests and congressional hearings on American Muslims are all unfortunate examples of a rising tide of fear that lead to intolerance and inequality. This climate of suspicion towards our fellow Americans compromises the great values that our country was founded upon. We've put together a 2 minute film in response that I believe you and the readers of Renaissance Research will be interested in sharing, watching, and discussing:

It would be great if you could post or tweet about this video. The site also has many other cool features including the ability to share your own stories and you can even take the "My Fellow American" pledge. If you are able to help, please let me know - I'd love to share your post or tweet with my team. I am here if you have any questions. Thank you so much.



Kitabs are the books written in Belarusian language using Arabic script. They were written mostly in the 16th century C.E. by the Tatars that lived in Belarus.
