Engaging Youth - KQED and KTEH will encourage youth to connect directly with history and deepen their understanding of WWII through "Share a Story." Training sessions will be held for teachers on how to help students collect and record their own stories.
Community Screenings and Public Forums - Three screenings and public forums will be held focusing on issues such as Latino contributions and ways to inform the public; the African American experience during and after the war; the Japanese American experience in internment camps; and the representation of communities of color in mainstream media.
In addition, DOC Film Institute at San Francisco State University
will present a 14-hour marathon screening of The War at Lucas Films
Theater in the Presidio from Sept. 14 through 16. Ken Burns and
co-director Lynn Novick will be present throughout the weekend
to discuss with the audience their experiences making the series.
KQED will also supplement the national series The
War with related

contributions of Americans from a diversity of backgrounds. Premieres
