Produced by Pittsburgh resident Ken Love, the documentary is scheduled to appear on PBS stations throughout the country. Love is a former long-time filmmaker for National Geographic magazine.
This is the second PBS television documentary that I have been an historical consultant and appeared in. The first was "The Black Press: Soldiers without Swords," which came out in 1999 and won a lot of awards.
