"Yokes and Chains” -102 Minute Documentary DVD 2007 - present
Cameras capture the startling confessions and raw emotion as the team begins to identify with what slaves may have experienced. Intense reactions of gratitude and support from descendants of Africans of the Diaspora greet them as they journey, as well as mistrust, hatred, and vocal opposition from white supremacist groups. From profound and moving public reconciliation events . . . to private and candid behind-the-scenes glimpses of team members and the struggles
they face as they prepare and then march with yokes and chains . . . this unprecedented dramatic documentary tackles the vital issues few people want to talk about: racism and the legacy of slavery. Watch the healing begin as whites and blacks release buried emotions of pain, sorrow and anger as they begin to forgive and reconcile, changing forever their perception of each other and themselves.

Individuals have donated their time and expertise to translate the entire program to their respective languages in English (Transcription) Spanish, French, German and Portuguese (subtitles). But we need funding ASAP to re-edit the “Yokes and Chains” documentary special to high definition and add in language subtitles for broadcasting internationally.
We have broadcasters internationally who are interested in broadcasting “Yokes and Chains” with subtitles but have requested that it be delivered in HD. So far the program has only been edited in Standard definition for distribution on DVD.
Budget (for re-editing and adding in 5 language subtitles)
The mission of RMN is to collect, document, archive and distribute video footage and multi-media on both historic and contemporary reconciliation events and interviews for various informational, educational and ministry purposes.
Visual Record of Reconciliation
We are attempting to create a visual history of reconciliation as it occurs around the globe. Our hope is that this visual record will serve as a useful tool to teach and inspire others to follow the Christ-centered, culturally sensitive models of racial and ethnic confession, repentance, reconciliation and restitution.
We collect footage of reconciliation happenings and personal stories around the world and anticipate building the largest archive of these events and interviews available. The footage will be transferred to a professional archive format; transcribed and catalogued using state-of-the-art digital technology. Our vision is to someday make it available on the INTERNET and other interactive medias, as well as in educational documentaries, books and CD-ROM.
This archive will be a valuable tool, accessible to non-profit organizations, churches, interested persons, government agencies, historians, museums, researchers and educational institutions for generations to come as a testimony to the healing that God is doing in our day.
Steven Speilberg has developed a foundation to videotape and record the testimonies of 60,000 survivors of the Shoah as a visual history of the holocaust to remember so that it will never happen again. The Native Americans over a 500 year period of time have experienced the greatest genocide of any people group in the history of the world and the legacy of the historical trans-atlantic slavery continues to this day with poverty, fatherlessness and racism. We would like to develop a foundation that would finance the training and equipping of Native American and Africans of the Diaspora youth to interview their people and elders about the identity and survival of their people.
This archive would be linked to the reconciliation archive as a valuable tool in helping all peoples understand the sufferings of these people groups and also be accessible to non-profit organizations, churches, interested persons, government agencies, historians, museums, researchers and educational institutions for generations to come as an educational record and a testimony to the healing that God is doing in our day.
“The Holocaust has great relevance to the history of racial prejudice in this country, not to mention what’s happening in Bosnia and Rwanda. I would love to see the technology serve as a model for oral history projects on black slavery or the Native American tragedy.”
Survivors of the Shoah Visual History Foundation
Through our various reconciliation projects over the past almost 20 years we have collected almost 1,000 hours of footage documenting reconciliation efforts with Native Americans and Africans of the Diaspora. Funding is needed to digitize, transcribe and make accessible this digital archive through a web server.

RMA Video Guidelines
To produce a professional 45-60 minute, video/DVD designed to inspire viewers with the necessary Biblical steps to healing our nation’s wounds in regards to the African-American legacies of slavery. The video will inspire a model for churches and ministries across the nation and world.
We started this new work in April before racial tensions rose in Ferguson and across the nation and have a sense of a urgency. The video would be an update similar to the DVD series "Healing Americas Wounds" produced in the 1990’s hosted by author of the same title, John Dawson with interviews, testimonies and visual elements. Nearly 100 hours of interviews and round table discussions have already been video captured from different parts of the world.
The video/DVD will be distributed to national and international Christian television networks. The DVD and online video will be distributed through various online sources, Christian Retail stores and distributors.
Total amount of designated funding needed $0 (Fully Funded by donation and in-kind services)
Much of the conflict in America focuses on the tension between African Americans and whites. It’s in the news and it’s urgent. This is obviously the legacy of the 400 year old slave trade and it needs to be healed.
So how does healing happen? What prevents it? Is anything being done?
For those who have a desire to address the very real dilemmas of racial division, and to work together for a new perspective of God’s eternal plan, we offer this compelling documentary.
In Racial Healing: The Eagles’ Journey, hear testimonies (stories) from dozens of the leading voices in the area of racial healing and reconciliation for a hopeful dialogue and challenge to unity.

Everyone Prepared Pass It On Campaign
Without an impending disaster, it’s difficult to motivate people to get prepared. Yet all it takes is for a major earthquake, hurricane, terrorist attack, fire, flood, storm or even a power outage, to cripple or wipe out assets; including our most valuable asset – our people. We can’t afford to be complacent. No one wants the regret of being ill-prepared.
What’s the solution? Introduce the new learner-friendly Everyone Prepared Pass It On Campaign to your organization or neighborhood and empower them to pass it on throughout their spheres of influence. Soon leaders throughout your community’s six sectors (i.e. government, businesses, schools, neighborhoods, non-profit service organizations, and faith communities) will conduct their own Everyone Prepared Pass It On Campaign and the word will spread. Before long, your community will have a movement of people prepared at home, in their automobile, at the workplace, and at their school or daycare – and passing it on to others.
Funding is needed to distribute these award winning educational productions: Personal Survival Kit, Pandemic Survival Kit and the Business Survival Kit to community access television, cable TV systems, libraries, schools and new media to better educate and equip families, schools and the public in disaster preparedness.
