Discussions About Death Homepage

Owens' grave

In conjunction with the national broadcast of Homegoings on June 24, 2013, POV has launched our 'Discussions About Death' online feature. In America, many people shy away from talking about death and dying, despite a desire and need to. Because of this, we want to encourage POV viewers to actively engage in conversations and talk about important and deeply human issues that all of us face at some time.

Visit the Discussions About Death online feature to learn more about funeral traditions and and the "deathcare" industry. Join the conversation with other POV viewers, and click the links below to share your thoughts on the following topics.
