This June, Iowa PBS presents Telling Our Own Story, four films produced by Black Iowan independent filmmakers providing insights on topics that have dominated recent headlines and Black culture since Iowa became a state. The unique perspectives of these filmmakers show what life is like for Black Iowans and provide a window for other cultures to see where similarities and differences exist. The AAMI is featured in the film, Black History.
An advance online preview of Telling Our Own Story will be hosted by Iowa PBS Thursday, June 2 at 7 p.m. Attendees will get to see a sneak peek of this powerful series before it airs on statewide Iowa PBS. Following the clips, David Miller, executive producer and director at Iowa PBS, will continue the conversation with filmmakers. Through the online shared media viewing platform, audience members can discuss the films and ask questions during the live discussion.

Black History will also air on Iowa PBS .1 on Tuesday, June 7 at 8 pm.
