Overton Park says
WTTW has produced a three-part series called 10 That Changed America which will broadcast nationally the first three weeks of April as part of the PBS schedule, starting on Tuesday, April 5. Each episode will feature ten homes, parks, or towns that have influenced architecture and the way we live in America. Overton Park is one of the locations featured in 10 Parks That Changed America, which traces the evolution of our city parks: from public squares, to picturesque landscapes, to play lots carved out of overcrowded immigrant enclaves, to postindustrial pleasure grounds.

WKNO and Memphis Brooks Museum of Art have invited series producer Dan Protess to screen clips from 10 Parks that Changed America and discuss the episode’s segment on Overton Park. Afterwards, Protess and series host Geoffrey Baer will participate in a panel discussion with Overton Park Conservancy Executive Director Tina Sullivan and Memphis historian Willy Bearden.

Reception begins at 5:30, with the screening set for 7:00. This event is free.
