More About American Portrait

Our country is home to millions of people. Each one of us is unique, and we’re all part of the American story. PBS American Portrait is an ongoing, evolving initiative that asks you, and people all over the country, to submit your individual stories by responding to one of a number of thought provoking prompts. See people across America tell their own stories in self-shot videos in the PBS American Portrait docuseries, airing Tuesdays in January at 9/8c.
