Media Alert: OPB documentary featuring Mitch Reyes premieres November 17
November 17, 2008
The Lewis & Clark Expedition was a pivotal moment in American history. But the story of York, a slave to William Clark and comrade on this journey, has been obscured by omission and stereotype. “Searching for York,” a film produced for Oregon Public Broadcasting’s Oregon Experience, paints a portrait of this unofficial member of the Corps of Discovery as it discusses the ways in which history is written.
The documentary debuts on OPB on November 17th at 9:00 p.m. “Searching for York” will be re-broadcast on Wednesday the 19th at 3:00 a.m. and Sunday the 23rd at 1:00 p.m.
