      A NEW KIND OF LISTENING is an hour-long documentary that takes us inside the creative work of the Community Inclusive Theater Group, as Director Richard Reho inspires cast members, some with disabilities, to be writers, actors and dancers in an original collaborative performance. Together they prove that a small community arts project has the power to transform lives. The film is witness to Chris Mueller-Medlicott’s early, unrecognized attempts to communicate, and to his journey from a lonely, withdrawn adolescent to co-director of the theater group. Over the course of a year, Chris, a young man who has never spoken a word and has been mislabeled profoundly mentally retarded, breaks through into stunning self-expression. A NEW KIND OF LISTENING weaves together deep feelings, playfulness, vulnerability, and unexpected loss into a joyful, painful celebration of our connection to each other. The result is a groundbreaking film that will change your beliefs about intelligence, disability and what it takes to be heard.

        After many weeks of reading the morning paper and cursing under my breath about the countless bills that set back human rights, civil rights and democracy in NC, I hopped on the People's Alliance bus in Durham on June 3, 2013 to take part in Moral Monday. The video captures the voice and powerful words of Rev. William Barber and images of protest and North Carlina citizens making their voices heard. 151 people were arrested on this day. From the Forward Together website: The Forward Together movement will continue to fight against cuts to social programs, education reforms and changes to voting laws in the state. The legislation that the NC House has pushed forward would hurt the most vulnerable North Carolinians and the voting rights legislation continues to attempt to undermine the people’s right to vote. If you are in North Carolina and would like to get involved or receive updates on the Forward Together Movement text NC 62227 for more information.
