Back in November of 2022, we were invited to the PCUSA headquarters in Louisville, Kentucky to film a short form PBS documentary. In May, households across the U.S. can view this segment via their local public broadcasting station. Your local PBS station will have the opportunity to show this documentary between broadcasts. A shorter version of the segment will also air across a myriad of cable networks like CNN and HLN.
But if you don't want to wait for it, you can find the video here.
