ANCESTORS IN THE AMERICAS
60 Min. Each • High School - Adult •
ANCESTORS IN THE AMERICAS is the first in-depth television series to present the untold history and contemporary legacy of Asian immigrants to the Americas, from the 1700's to the early 1900's. The 3 part series portrays the little-known stories of these early immigrants, reveals their long and pioneering struggle for basic rights, and depicts their lasting cultural, legal and pivotal economic contributions to the building of America. Using an innovative "documemoir" approach, ANCESTORS brings to life this largely undocumented past, not found in standard text books, and invites a new understanding of American history. (Viewer Guides are now available online).
"In an intimate and accessible way, ANCESTORS IN THE AMERICAS tells a sweeping story.... This is history that surprises; its artful presentation is a unique and wonderful achievement."
-Sandra Heberer, PBS Director of News and Information Programming
