Community engagement is another vital component of a Ken Burns production. For each film, a comprehensive national engagement campaign is developed to create a larger discussion around its themes. Through the filmmakers’ and broadcasters’ efforts, local stations engage their audiences with screenings and discussion events, digital media workshops, local productions, and new media broadcasts tailored to the needs of their own communities.

The Better Angels Society supports educational outreach and community engagement for each film as well as new plans to enhance and expand proven strategies by connecting students, teachers, and communities across the country via a wide range of platforms, cutting-edge technology, and social media.
