Celebrate Diversity with America Ferrera & Independent Lens

Posted on February 23, 2011
IL host reminds us that everyday is heritage day

There is a heritage or history month for practically every ethnicity, race, and identity. Throughout February, we on BTB have been highlighting documentaries by and about filmmakers of color, in honor of Black History Month. From NBPC’s AfroPop Series to the Independent Lens doc When I Rise featuring the legendary opera singer Barbara Smith Conrad. Now, Independent Lens host America Ferrera reminds us to celebrate diversity on a daily basis. Know your roots and history, and join with others to celebrate theirs, every Tuesday at 10 PM on PBS.
