The POV documentary Homegoings brings the beauty and grace of African-American funerals to life through the eyes of a Harlem funeral director.

As a companion to the PBS broadcast this June, POV is asking your help to build a national shrine to funeral traditions, representing the cultures, regions and religions of American communities.

We want to hear stories of your own family’s unique funeral traditions, and the way you memorialize and honor your loved one. Share your story with other PBS viewers by visiting the ‘My Family’s Funeral Traditions’ website.
