What do you do when you see division, fear, and heartbreak overtaking your small urban town but no one stepping up with a solution? In 2010, an unlikely group of citizens stood up and took action to heal the hurt of New London, CT, in the aftermath of a brutal murder that set the city ablaze with anger, fear, and racial divide. They proved that we are all “Those People,” and yet, none of us are. 

The New London Talent Show proved that when you face your biases and come together with your talents, you will be surprised by the healing, intentional conversations, and dreams that can arise. Unity begins with accepting our role in stereotyping others and admitting that at any time we can be, are, and have been “Those People."

Produced by Curtis Goodwin & Peter Huoppi, directed by Peter Huoppi
