Welcome to Inside American Experience, a new blog from the makers of PBS's flagship history series. Over 22 years on the air, we've brought you more than 200 films and explored a range of subjects as diverse as the American experience itself.
Now, we'll take you behind the scenes and give you an inside look at our upcoming projects and examine today's headlines through a historical lens. You'll hear from our filmmakers, historians and scholars, staffers, and from audience members like you.
Your input will help shape the future of this blog, so I encourage you to leave comments, participate in discussions, and send us your suggestions. To get in touch, leave a comment below, or find us on Twitter, become a fan on Facebook, or send us a good old-fashioned e-mail.
Jen Holmes is a blogger for Inside American Experience and a member of the communications team.
