The Canisius College Video Institute production of the May episode of “Kaleidoscope” premiered earlier this month on WGRZ-TV 2. This 30-minute television program celebrates the religious diversity of our region and is produced in conjunction with the Network of Religious Communities. “Kaleidoscope” will rebroadcast on Friday, May 12 at 6:35 p.m. on Time Warner Cable 20.

In the first segment, host Stan Bratton, PhD, talks with Parisima Sobhani, PhD, a practicing Baha’i, about her work in the United Nations Refugee Camps in Africa, the teachings of the Baha’i Faith and the Baha’i holidays of May.

In the second segment, Bratton discusses the meaning of Ramadan with Bayram Arman, an international businessman, and April Arman, director of Rahama. The pair talks about how they are able to keep the Ramadan fast in the midst of extremely busy lives.

Students in the Canisius College Video Institute produce “Kaleidoscope” under the guidance of Jamie O’Neil, associate professor of digital media arts and co-director of the Video Institute, and Paula DeAngelis-Stein ’86, MS ’02, a producer with Daybreak Productions, the broadcast arm of the Catholic Diocese of Buffalo.
