PBS American Portrait Explores State of the American Dream


To celebrate its 50th anniversary PBS has spent the past year trying to answer one question: What does it really mean to be an American today? Over 10,000 stories and a global pandemic later, people from across the country are still weighing in and their answers are the foundation of a new four-part series. Tonight, producers Craig D’Entrone and Michèle Stephenson share a sneak peek at the first episode, “I Dream,” that focuses on the meaning of the American Dream, from the desire to own a home to pursuing higher education and finding career success.
