PBS North Carolina Presents 9/11: We Remember and More Special Programming

This month, we recognize that 20 years have passed since that fateful day of September 11, 2001 when our nation – and our spirit – was forever changed by a terrorist attack. Although the attacks were not physically felt on North Carolina soil, for many North Carolinians, the events of September 11th were deeply personal and impactful. 

I’m sure any of you who are old enough to remember can recollect exactly where you were when you heard the news of the Twin Towers collapsing. 9/11 will forever be etched in our memories. 

I invite you to watch our new broadcast special 9/11: We Remember where our talented producers Heather Burgiss and Jonathan Duran combine thoughtful storytelling and artful work to give us an intimate look back on that tragic day and how it has shaped us for generations to come. 

During the next week, I also invite you to share your own 9/11 memories with us on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter by tagging @mypbsnc. 

Sending you my thanks and heartfelt thoughts during this time of remembrance, 

Justine Schmidt
Chief Content Officer
