"If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse gift will find a fitting place."
— Margaret Mead, Cultural Anthropologist
Currently, there is growing rhetoric of the polarization in the United States on viewpoints on race, religions, ethnicities, country of origin, gender/ sexuality and political divide. Perspectives on this topic are oftentimes developed through beliefs rather than experience.
As a member of a Mosaic Family, a non-homogenous family with a mix of race, religions, ethnicities, countries of origin, gender, sexuality, beliefs and political leanings, we were exposed to and developed an appreciation that our commonalities eclipsed our differences. During formative years, this exposure within our family and community, allowed members of our family to have greater awareness and experiences with loved ones who were not ‘just like us’ and hence appreciation of people with dissimilar features and belief systems. These formative experiences gave young people in our family the opportunity to appreciate each other and celebrate our commonalities as well as our diversity.
Create an experience where Americans can experience the value of a diverse community of people, to learn how we are much more similar than different from each other, and appreciate each other on a more intimate setting by sharing perspectives from Mosaic Families. It is our hope that through this sharing, we will increase the community of people who cherish the diversity of our people whether by race, religions, ethnicities, countries of origin, gender, sexuality, beliefs and political leaning.
Create a forum – perhaps a living e-magazine – where we share and celebrate Mosaic Families. In this forum, we will:
+ Liberate stories from and about Mosaic Families
+ Create a loud and vociferous voice for 1HumanKind
+ Potentiate a forum for inquiry and exchange; an environment for learning and sharing with a goal of
increasing the dialogue amongst all people on issues of race, religions, ethnicities, countries of origin,
gender/ sexuality, political leaning and beliefs
+ Share a vernacular to express that we are all connected as 1HumanKind so as to increasingly potentiate
Global Peace and Collaboration
What do we mean by living e-magazine?

In memory of Nikolas Wolf Knight, for his vibrant zest for life and essential member of the Knight Mosaic family
1HumanKind was launched in loving celebration of Nikolas Wolf Knight, the boy we all love with a vibrant zest for life and essential member of the Knight Mosaic Family.
Though his life was truncated, Nikolas had a significant impact on the lives of those he touched even as a young teenager of 14-years. He shared a considerable level of empathy, compassion, consideration, vibrancy and gratitude. Through example, Nikolas shared his goals to “make a positive impact” in the world and hoped to create his own mosaic family someday.
As a memorial to the life of Nikolas Wolf Knight, the Knight family and friends have created 1HumanKind, an organization “Celebrating Human Diversity & Commonalities to create an ecosystem where we can feel united as 1HumanKind”. Our first project is to find joy in co-creating an interactive, multimedia ‘magazine-esque’ to enable articles and dialogue celebrating multicultural Mosaic Families and their contribution to the 1HumanKind ecosystem called 1HumanFamily. While this is a memorial for the spirit of Nikolas Wolf Knight, it is also a celebration for the future, for our families, for all of us, for all of humanity.
