Ethnicity & Gender

POV creates, identifies and presents contemporary stories that express opinions and perspectives rarely featured in mainstream media. Our Diverse Voices Project further extends the impact of programs on minority themes and supports the work of emerging filmmakers. Our documentaries offer PBS viewers the opportunity discover the stories of people they might otherwise not come across in their daily lives. Diverse Voices has brought POV viewers such varied fare as American Aloha: Hula Beyond Hawaii, Flag Wars, 90 Miles, and The Flute Player.
