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. Now, we just wrapped shooting our second and third episodes with WGCU Public Media in Southwest Florida and UNC-TV in North Carolina collecting local stories and family pictures.
Family Pictures USA wants to revitalize and highlight the rich history through the help of local families and the community. Share your photographs and the stories behind them with us to be part of a bigger narrative building an inclusive national Family Album.
“Once you see America through family pictures, you will never see this country the same way again.”
