AMERICA BY THE NUMBERS
Posted by NALIP on October 23, 2014
Premiering earlier this month on WORLD Channel and PBS, AMERICA BY THE NUMBERS is a new documentary series that focuses on the dramatic demographic shifts currently taking place in this country. As it explores underreported stories from every corner of the nation, they reveal the human face of the biggest population change in U.S. history.
The new American mainstream—the growing number of Asians, Latinos, African Americans, mixed race, immigrants, women, youth, and LGBT—is influencing elections, culture, commerce, and every facet of contemporary life. The series investigates these dynamic developments using infographics, statistical analysis, in-depth reporting, and compelling storytelling with anchor and executive producer Maria Hinojosa.
Tune in tonight on World Channel (9pmET/8pmCT): Maria Hinojosa speaks with tribal members at Fort Berthold Reservation about the benefits —and consequences— of the Bakken Oil boom.
