WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE AN AMERICAN?

PBS and LPB are teaming up to launch one of the most ambitious storytelling initiatives ever. AMERICAN PORTRAIT aims to capture the state and the spirit of our nation in a way that only YOU can do: by telling YOUR story, and sharing it with the rest of the world. Taking part is simple: go to the PBS AMERICAN PORTRAIT website, and follow the instructions on how to "add your story." You'll be given a series of thought-provoking prompts that you can finish. 

Some examples include: "I was raised to believe..." "You don't know what it's like to..." or "What keeps me up at night is..." 
You can submit a video, a photograph, a drawing, or text. 

LPB will be telling you more about American Portrait in the coming month. Everyone is invited to take part. Sign up and start sharing your story with America.
