Civil rights pioneer Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. once said that America's most segregated hour was 11 o'clock on a Sunday morning, for Christian church services. A local and nationwide effort is trying to bridge that racial gap.

When Ahava Raba performs Sunday night at the North Park Theatre, it will be the culmination of 15 months of effort.
