My Journey Home


WETA Washington, D.C.

Series Description

The two-hour documentary My Journey Home probes America's diversity through three new American voices -- Armando Peña, writer Faith Adiele, and journalist Andrew Lam. Through stories that are at turns thought-provoking, humorous, and emotionally devastating, and always deeply personal and revealing, Adiele, Lam, and Peña explore buried pasts, mixed heritages, missing fathers, and broken dreams. The program follows them as they travel to their ancestral homelands and traverse the landscape of cultural identity.
