DIVE DEEP INTO "DOG TALES"

DETAILS:
NOVA: Dog Tales
Wednesday, Feb.12
8-9pm

Are you a dog person or a cat person? Do you have to be one or the other? Can't we all just get along?

Over the next two weeks, LPB is pleased to bring you a two part companion series from NOVA that uses science to unravel the story of our faithful companions, both canine and feline. NOVA: Dog Tales follows the epic journey of dog domestication to see what science has to say about why dogs love. 

Dogs have long been dependable companions, but it wasn't always that way. Follow researchers as they uncover clues into what the human-dog relationship is all about by analyzing dogs' brain activity and genetics. Are you a dog person? Share photos of your furry friends on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and make sure and tag LPB!

FINDING YOUR ROOTS - THE LOUISIANA CONNECTION

DETAILS:
Finding Your Roots: The Slave Trade
Tuesday, Feb. 11
7-8pm

Tonight's episode of Finding Your Roots journeys to the unexpected places where the ancestors of film director Ava DuVernay, actor S. Epatha Merkerson, and musician Questlove were scattered by slavery, upending their notions of African American history. 

Of particular interest to viewers in Louisiana is the story of S. Epatha Merkerson, whose roots are tied to the GU272, those enslaved people who were sold by the priests of Georgetown College to Catholic plantation owners in Ascension, Iberville, and Terrebonne Parishes. If you are interested in more on that part of Louisiana history, check out lpb.org/programs/finding-your-roots.

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.
