America By the Numbers with Maria Hinojosa
America By the Numbers with Maria Hinojosa puts a human face on the demographic changes in the U.S. and looks at how the rising multicultural population is influencing our culture, our conversation and may impact the 2012 elections.
In the pilot episode, “America By The Numbers: Clarkston Georgia”, Maria Hinojosa visits one of the most diverse communities in America with residents from over 40 countries speaking over 60 different languages. With animation and a cinematic lens “ABTN: Clarkston Georgia” explores the lessons that can be learned by a divided nation from our newest Americans about democracy and getting along. The program is produced by the Futuro Media Group and has been funded in part by the National Minority Consortia and the Ford Foundation, and will air on PBS on September 21, 2012 as a Need to Know Election 2012 Special Presentation. Executive Producers: Maria Hinojosa and Martha Spanninger. Producer Xochitl Dorsey.
