Thanks to the format of the show, Detroiters will have plenty of chances to have their story heard.   “Family Pictures: USA” borrows the format of “Antiques Roadshow” and merges it with the DNA of a storytelling event (think The Moth). It’s part personal family history, part oral history of a time or place told through members of the community that lived through it — or relatives that kept the family photos.   To read the full article, go here: Family Photos More info at: 1world1family   One Detroit is dedicated to telling the stories of real Detroiters--their struggles, victories, and hopes for the city.   Check out our this One Detroit Moment featuring Coach Khali of the Downtown Boxing Gym Youth Program:
