Letter to local PBS stations to broadcast the “What Will Become of Us” – a powerful documentary about Armenian Americans confronting the 100th Anniversary of the Armenian Genocide
Dear Program Director:
I am writing to ask you to broadcast “What Will Become of US,” a documentary film that is resonating powerfully with PBS audiences of all backgrounds, in cities and towns across America.
You can watch the documentary trailer and contact the directors/producers by visiting:
Despite our many contributions to every aspect of American society over the past century, we have yet to see the Armenian American story told on a national television platform. Our local Armenian community would warmly welcome your broadcast and is ready – during these days of social distancing – to safely spread the word on-line to friends, family, neighbors, and colleagues.
The inspiring theme of a community rising from the ashes of genocide is all the more relevant in the wake of last year’s Congressional landmark resolutions recognizing the Armenian Genocide – ending the longest-lasting foreign gag-rule in American history.
“What Will Become of Us” has already been shown on major PBS stations in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, and Los Angeles. My family and I hope to watch it on our PBS station as well.
Thank you for your consideration of my request.
