Event description

Description

Join the Detroit Historical Society and Digital Diaspora Family Reunion for a special outdoor premiere and sneak peek of Family Pictures USA, a new tv show airing on PBS this August!

Family Pictures USA is a television series & multimedia project that explores neighborhoods & cities through the lens of the family photo album. Hosted by Thomas Allen Harris, this public television series enlarges our understanding of history, our diversity, and our shared values.

This partnership was formed in conjunction with the 50th Anniversary of July 1967 Detroit and the Detroit Historical Society's Detroit 67: Looking Back to Move Forward community engagement initiative. To learn more about Family Pictures USA and to watch the trailer, visit https://familypicturesusa.com/.

Before the show airs in its entirety on PBS, (August 12 and 13, 2019), we hope you'll join us for a special screening of portions of episodes filmed in Detroit, Southwest Florida, and North Carolina, featuring the local families who shared their family stories with us in Summer 2017.

The fun begins at 7pm and all are invited to explore the Detroit Historical Museum, opportunities to share your family stories, and food vendors, with a formal program starting at 8:30pm. The film will start after dark (around 9:30 pm) on the south facing wall of the Detroit Historical Museum on Legend's Plaza (at the corner of Woodward Ave & Kirby St.)

This event is free and open to the public, but reservations are encouraged. Questions? Contact Kalisha Davis at kalishad@detroithistorical.org or 313-833-4306.
