  • To truly reflect diversity, PBS must end its overreliance on Ken Burns as ‘America’s Storyteller’

    This essay is part of Creative Futures, a series of provocations by artists, documentary filmmakers and journalists describing concrete, actionable plans that would help transform society toward a more just, equitable and democratic future.  The Ford Foundation’s Creativity and Free Expressions program initiated the project by inviting 44 thinkers from the arts, documentary filmmaking and journalism to contribute essays responding to demands for change that have risen from the inequities laid bare by the COVID-19 pandemic, police killings of people of color and protests that spread globally in response. The prompt to essayists requested “provocations” drawn from personal experience to envision how their sectors can change to advance social and cultural transformation.  Grace Lee’s provocation on the need for “more than one lens” for PBS’ long-form documentary films is republished here in full with permission from the Ford Foundation.  For many, public television is synonymous with Ken Burns.
