Series Description
"DIARY is a series of shows profiling different communities of color in Minnesota, focusing on the extraordinary aspects of the lives of ordinary people. Each show presents a personal perspective about growing up and living in Minnesota from people representing a broad diversity of backgrounds and opinions. "Unlike documentaries which take a more purist approach, DIARY is very much people-oriented, and lets the viewer get to know the people in each story ? the challenges they face, the unique aspects and feelings each has about growing up and living in a place where they are often perceived as 'different.' Because they are presented as unique individuals and not as a generalized conglomerate, the viewer is given a more meaningful representation of the issues, concerns and stories each person has to share. "With the escalating intergroup conflicts and racial tensions witnessed not only in Minnesota but throughout the U.S., the DIARY series hopes to foster a deeper, more respectful understanding between the races by presenting some very personal stories in a very accessible way. "Each DIARY was followed by a live town meeting where a studio audience made up of citizens from different regions of Minnesota joined community leaders and other connected with the issues in a discussion on the experiences of being a minority living in Minnesota. In addition, viewer call-in response to each of the shows was extremely high, indicative of the kind of interest these programs aroused within the community."-- 1992 Peabody Awards entry form
