THE STORY OF US: A KMOS AMERICAN PORTRAIT SPECIAL. This half-hour documentary special showcases inspiring stories of individuals living with disabilities from across central Missouri as part of the national crowdsourced storytelling project PBS AMERICAN PORTRAIT, the signature content initiative of PBS’s 50th anniversary.
This special seeks to show that individuals living with disabilities are people first, and have the exact same hopes and dreams as others in our community and are making important contributions that help make up the rich tapestry of American life today!
To help make this local initiative possible KMOS-TV partnered with West-Central Independent Living Solutions (WILS) and Services for Independent Living (SIL) to help gather user generated content for this special, by highlighting individuals with disabilities in central Missouri. Participants responded to discussion prompts such as “I was raised to believe…”, “I took a risk when…”, “My Saturday night looks like…”, “The tradition I carry on is…”, and more.
