The Canisius College Video Institute production of the June episode of “Kaleidoscope” premiered earlier this month on WGRZ-TV Channel 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 each Friday at 6:30 p.m. on Spectrum Cable 20 and each Sunday at 8:00 p.m. on Charter 6 in Olean, NY.
In the first segment, Dr. Stan Bratton talks with Dr. Nasir Khan, current president of the Network of Religious Communities and president of the Buffalo Chapter of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, about the challenges of interreligious understanding and cooperation in the present day, and the 39th Annual Appreciation Dinner of the Network of Religious Communities. He also talks with the community’s Imam, Adnan Ahmad, about the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community and the upcoming religious celebration at the end of Ramadan.
In the second segment of the show, Annalyse Paulsen ’19 interviews Elizabeth Bruenig during her recent visit to Western New York. Bruenig is an opinion columnist who focuses on politics, religion and morality in public life.
