“Evolution of America: 1619- 2019” Documentary

“Evolution of America: 1619 to Today” is a one-hour documentary created for a national audience that explores four historical events of this seemingly obscure but decisive year, and the effect that year had on the growth and development of the U.S., which still resonates today. Supported by approximately 16 minutes of narration, the majority of the show features interviews with Virginia and national leaders discussing how the 1619 events are reflected in contemporary American society. Produced in partnership with Cinebar Productions, Inc., Maryland Public Television serves as the presenting PBS station for national marketing and distribution.
