‘Family Pictures USA’ TV Series

National TV series that explores neighborhoods & cities through the lens of the family photo album!

“Once you see America through family pictures, you will never see this country the same way again.”

Thomas Allen Harris hosts “Family Pictures USA”, a new TV series that explores neighborhoods and cities through people’s family photo albums for a true “people’s history.” Our pilot series kicks off in Detroit where we interviewed hundreds of families and gathered thousands of photographs. We need your help towards completing a 1 hour pilot episode for national broadcast!

Family Pictures USA is a documentary-style magazine show, filmed before a live studio audience, that journeys through a rapidly changing landscape where the foundations of a familiar and idealized “AMERICA” are being transformed.

The Mighty Joe Von Battle – Requiem for a Record Shop Man

My father, the late Joe Von Battle, was an important mid-century recorder and producer of blues and gospel music in Detroit, from 1945 until 1967. He has been called the “Chess of Detroit”, referring to the iconic Chicago Record company, and is regarded by many as a cornerstone in the building of the “Detroit Sound.”

Before You Came, We Were Here: An Ojibway Family & The Making of Detroit

Chantel Henry (Ginew Kwe or "Golden Eagle Woman") became aware of her and her family's deep connection to the city of Detroit about four years ago. We are so honored that she decided to share with us the story of how her grandparents, Arnold and Freda Henry, came to Detroit and her family's rich history in the city.

Just realized my family's genealogy, photo albums, and LACK of genealogy and photo albums are a perfect example of why Family Pictures USA is such an important project that I'm so happy to be a part of. The first picture might as well be all we have of the genealogy for my Spanish father who was born in Cuba. His parents moved from Spain during the Franco regime and there simply isn't any record to go back to. My mother's family, on the other hand, was painstakingly traced through American history by my grandfather and displayed by my mother. From daguerreotypes to census info, we even found an ancestor with the coolest name *ever* who was actually born ON the Mayflower while docked at Cape Cod. How cool is that?? Photographs and history matter so much, and it's a shame I don't know more about my Latino father's origins. ... See MoreSee Less
