Family Pictures USA is a television series & transmedia project that explores neighborhoods & cities through the lens of the family photo album. Hosted by Thomas Allen Harris, this public television series enlarges our understanding of history, our diversity, and our shared values.
We started in Detroit where we interviewed hundreds of families and gathered thousands of photographs. We just wrapped shooting our second episode with WGCU Public Media collecting local stories and family pictures in Southwest Florida.
Now, Family Pictures USA is going to North Carolina this November to film our third episode with UNC-TV!
Family Pictures USA wants to revitalize and highlight the rich history of North Carolina through the help of local families and the community. Bring your photographs and the stories behind them to be part of a bigger narrative that connects you to your fellow North Carolinians and the rest of the world!
