Discover the childhood friendship in Poland prior to World War II between a Catholic boy, Karol Wojtlya, later known as Pope John Paul II, and Jerzy Kluger, a Jewish boy, who became the Pope's personal emissary to Israel, at the free Faces of Diversity Brown Bag series at noon Friday, Nov. 18, at the Phoenix City Council Chambers, 200 W. Jefferson St.

The national touring exhibit is in Phoenix through Dec. 11, at the George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center, 415 E. Grant St.

The exhibit, viewed by more than a half million people in 15 prior host cities across the county since its inception in 2005, includes photographs, videos, artifacts and historical documents from U.S. and European lending institutions.

Nancy Splain and Miryam Salter, members of the Blessing Project AZ host committee for the exhibit; the Rev. Jan Olav Flatten, executive director, Arizona Ecumenical Council; and Princess Crump, executive director, George Washington Carver Museum and Cultural Center will share their inspiring stories about the exhibit and how it brings a timely message of openness, respect, dialogue and reconciliation much needed in today's world.

The free event is co-sponsored by the Phoenix Human Relations Commission and the city's Equal Opportunity Department.

The Faces of Diversity series features dynamic people telling their stories about diversity.

Bring your lunch and enjoy a cultural experience. No reservation is needed.
