We are proud to announce our partnership with the Plymouth Canton Citizens for Diversity and Inclusion, a diverse group of community members. Its goal is to further diversity and inclusion throughout the Plymouth/Canton Community. Their vision is to guide our community to recognize the importance of building a culturally diverse place with the spirit of inclusion which will create a welcoming environment. The first movie in our Diversity and Inclusion Movie Series is:
The great debaters — starring Denzel Washington. This deeply-inspiring film based on a true story. Washington stars as a brilliant, politically radical debate team coach who transforms a group of underdog African American college students.
This event has been postponed. Check here in the future for the new date and time.

To that end, we are hosting a movie series of important films that emphasize that theme. One film we will watch and discuss is Ocean of Pearls at a time/date to be announced. Dr. Amrit Singh, a Sikh, is of two worlds, but at odds with both. He is offered a prestigious hospital position, but struggles to be the man he is and the person he wants to become.
