Synopsis: Operation Understanding was founded in the 1960s as an experiment following the riots motivated by racial inequities and prejudice in the state of New Jersey. Sarah B. Oliver (Valerie Miche’El Oliver’s mother) worked as volunteer staff through Queen of Angels Parish in Newark, NJ, and had her children participate in the program. Operation Understanding was created as a hopeful and practical solution to help eliminate racial hatred, ignorance, and divisiveness.
Season One documents the journey and outcomes of the experiment on three families: the Olivers, the Cliffords and the Taylors. More to come.
